Bursary fund personal call

first_imgMargaret Elsworth, African Scholars’ Fund patronI founded the African Scholars’ Fund with many leading educationalists in 1970. It was meant to be a stop-gap arrangement to help schoolchildren during the terrible days of apartheid and school disruption. After 50 years we shall be publishing a booklet and the biggest gap in our knowledge is what happened to all our scholars. A few we know about, and they are treasured. Some are donors to the fund.Our children come from all over the Western Province, Eastern Province and Northern Cape – Kuruman, Umtata, Nababeep, Noupoort, Port Elizabeth, East London, Queenstown, Cala, Aberdeen,Fort Beaufort – allthe cities and tinytowns – and of course all the Cape Town areas. During the past 50 years about 40 000 schoolchildren got bursaries from this fund.This is a personal call to them or anyone who can tell us about any of our children. If you had a bursary while you were at school, please tell us what happened to you after that. Perhaps you are high up in government or perhaps you are a road-sweeper, a teacher, a lawyer, a carpenter, or you might be out ofwork. You might even be retired now.You can send a letter to PO Box 294, Rondebosch, 7700 or email [email protected] or [email protected]om or visit www.asf.org.zalast_img
