NMMU’s Light a Candle campaign has helped another student to achieve his dream with a bursary of R25000 from the NMMU Trust Office. Sakhumzi Dukwe is just one of the thousands of students let down by the government financial aid scheme this year.

Sakhumzi who matriculated from Soweto-on Sea’s SEK Mqhayi High School last year will have his second year of psychology studies financed through pledges made by donors buying into the trust’s Bursary Legacy “Light a Candle” campaign.
