ABOUT THE BURSARY PROVIDER – DONALD WHITE/ MANDLA A. NDWANYA MEMORIAL FUND
The Donald White/ Mandla A. Ndwanya Memorial Fund was created in 2012 to honor Donald White (a career educator) and Mandla Andrew Ndwanya (an individual with a strong legacy and passion for business studies in South Africa).
To honor both men, White’s family established the fund to provide support to learners in Nyaga/ Gugulethu and its neighboring areas. The Fund was registered as an NPO in the United States in 2017 and through this, formed a Board responsible for major decisions about the future of many young South Africans. The main goal of the fund is to raise money from charitable donations to benefit students and increase global awareness for American and South African students.
The Fund mainly supports students from Mkhanyiseli Primary School and John Pama Primary School in Nyanga by providing them with uniforms and shoes. It also provides American and South African students with scholarships, aiding them in pursuing further education at educational colleges and universities. The fund also provides internships to current U.S. based college students within Cape Town with the aid of its partner Volunteer Adventure Corps (VACTHE WHITE NDWANYA BURSARY PROGRAMME – FIELDS COVERED
