2023 UP Giving Day Campaign Q & A

Funding Testimonials: Experiences from students funded by donors like you

Gugu Ihenacho

BE THE HOPE: BE THE HOPE: “A lot of students that come into our offices have actually lost hope in terms of continuing their studies or actually re-registering. So we see a lot of hope being restored in our students when we are able to offer them that financial assistance that wouldn’t be otherwise available.” – Gugu Ihenacho, Senior Assistant Director: Financial Aid.

Avhashoni Managa

CREATE OPPORTUNITIES: “I’ll encourage people to go ahead and donate because even if it is a small amount, it could give relief to a person facing financial exclusion. It could prevent a person from finding himself or herself sleeping at the library because they cannot afford accommodation. So this also gives opportunities and makes students optimistic about life.” – Avhashoni Managa, Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery [MBChB] student.

Jaley Lakey

MAKE A DIFFERENCE: “I am the first one in my whole family to go to university, and that has made me so happy because with financial aid I was able to go on with my studies. Now I can finally say I have a degree behind my name. I am truly beyond grateful for it.” – Jaley Lakey, BSocSci Industrial Sociology and Labour Studies student.

Resego Mophoso

SHAPE THE FUTURE: “I would like to encourage people to donate and allow more people such as myself to be able to attend university and to graduate, so that in turn we can help more people in the future.” – Resego Mophoso, Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery [MBChB] student.
