Make A Difference Leadership Foundation provides scholarships to more than 300 individuals across South Africa. Our main priority in the wake of the pandemic announcement has been to ensure the well-being of our scholars, many of whom have had to go home in light of the shutdown of educational institutions.
Home means different things to everyone. This reality brings challenges of its own.
The nature of our work has shifted dramatically in terms of the support we offer our scholars. Our team of scholar support has been working with earnest to focus even more on pandemic-related emerging concerns regarding financial strain, academic pressure and emotional and psychological wellness.
With the loss of income from our main fundraisers being cancelled for the year, we need your help more than ever to rally behind us and help us keep our commitment to our scholars.
As we work with the immediacy and urgency required of us, it is important that we bear the future in mind. Help us to keep our commitment to our scholars, in order to be able to continue producing the needed talent to keep our country strong.
