Gr. 12 learners within the municipal boundaries of the Thembelihle Muni-cipality who want to further their studies in 2018 can get assistance with their study applications.

This includes learners from the Steynville High School and the Strydenburg Combined School.

The community-based Hopetown Impumelelo Project aims to make the application process stress-free for the local youth.

The project was recently launched in Hopetown by social entrepreneur and former student of the North-West University, Zwelakhe Boloko, and Cpiwo Dolopi, motivational speaker.

The co-operation of other partners will also contribute towards the success of the programme.

The project also aims to encourage more learners from Hopetown and Strydenburg to be registered at tertiary institutions.

According to Boloko, the application process will be done online.

It will include applications for accommodation and bursaries in the most cost-effective manner possible.

Boloko said there will be continuous communication between the applicant and the institutions through weekly SMSs, emails or WhatsApp messages following the submission of the application.

The project is expected to run until 31 October.

“This project is the first of its kind to be launched in the Northern Cape and we plan to make it an annual event,” Boloko said.

“We see potential in our young people and that is why we started this project.

“We want to make them aware of the opportunities that are available to them.”

He said the project will pay for the application fees.

According to Boloko, they are looking forward to expanding the project to other districts next year.

They will provide training to youth leaders so that they can, in turn, launch and implement this same project in their own towns.

Anyone who wants to become involved in the programme or make a financial contribution towards the initiative can call Boloko on 078-887-3409 or Dolopi on 078-137-2737.
