University fees

Every evening, Rita gets out her books to study at the kitchen table in the humble inner city flat she shares with her mom and two sisters.

But she doesn't know if she'll be able to sit her exams. Because her UNISA fees are outstanding.

Rita's mom is a widow and a refugee from Zimbabwe. She's also disabled and cannot walk properly. Yet somehow she's managed to keep her three girls in school, because she knows the importance of education.

The girls are all pleasant and bright members of the Holy Trinity parish in Braamfontein, where they help out at the weekly soup kitchen whenever they can.

Rita passed matric with university exemption in 2011 and is now in her second year of PR and Communications studies through UNISA. She also tries to earn money to help with the rent and food.

If ever someone deserved a helping hand, it's this young girl. Right now she urgently needs R2 000 to pay off her 2014 fees so that she can write exams. Please help if you can, by making your donation online now.

Sometimes life is just so unfair ... despite putting in all the effort, the chance of a good job and a better life for herself and her family remain just out of Rita's reach.

Unless someone like you will help. Your gift of any amount will make a difference, and will be paid directly to UNISA on Rita's behalf. Thank you for reaching out to those who are less fortunate.
