“I joined the UP Mamelodi Campus in 2015. I empower the students with needlework knowledge and practical work. I teach them how to do sewing,” said Stephina Van Rooyen, Community Business Mentor, Chef, and Tailor.

The Faculty aims to continuously strengthen engagement and development in the fields of economic, financial and management sciences through its academic and research excellence.

        

I am Stephina.

I’m a community business mentor, chef, and tailor. I joined the UP Mamelodi Campus in 2015. Sewing is one of the things I teach here, and the UP students help us to apply basic project management principles so they can create real, sustainable businesses.
 

Thank you UP.

Being socially responsible matters.
