There are two ways for you to help us:
A. Help us to complete our cycling trip so that we can engage in the development of good men while raising funds for our community. Connect with us to hear about our clothing, transport and food needs. email@example.com
B. Donate to the Nkululeko Fund to decrease the financial burden of a future health care worker of South Africa.
Our donations are done through GivenGain, which is a secure payment platform through which NPO’s do fundraising. We fall under the Alumni office at Stellenbosch University, but all our proceeds go to the Nkululeko Fund.
Once our yearly campaign has reached its deadline, all funds raised through our account are transferred to a cost point within the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences Business Management department. From here the funds are distributed to students through the Nkululeko Fund, which is independently managed by staff and students within the faculty.

Why is there a need?
A large percentage of the students on our campus are on either bursaries, or public funding. This certainly provides talented students with the opportunity to study, which is amazing, but these funds can’t provide for everything a student needs. Bursaries are limited to supplying funds for 4 categories:
• text books
• food allowances
If students don’t receive support from home they are forced to buy toiletries, data, health care needs, transport home (many live far from campus) and any other costs that don’t fall under the four categories of student support, from their food allowances (which is a maximum of R1500 per month, or R50 per day). This leaves them without food security, but also incapable of upholding a lifestyle that favours them to succeed.
