The Hopetown-based Project Impumelelo has been lauded for various achievements since its launch in May 2017.

The project was launched as an intervention to help Gr. 12 learners within the boundaries of the Thembelihle Municipality who want to further their studies, to apply to the institutions of their choice.

Application fees are paid through the project, through which assistance with bursary applications has also been provided.

To take the project further, a partnership with the Vodacom Foundation, together with the Hopetown Youth Centre, was established, which will further see the opening of a computer centre to equip the community of Hopetown with Information and Communication Technology (ICT) skills.

According to Victor Dolopi, the co-founder of the project, they had managed to submit a total of 34 applications to five different higher education institutions in South Africa for the 2018 academic year, thanks to the help of stakeholders.

Elaborating on the project’s achievements, he added that the Project Impumelelo team had further managed to submit 57 bursary applications to six different organisations that provide funding.

“The volunteers of Project Impumelelo (Zwelakhe Boloko, Dolopi and Deonette Cedras) thank the more than 13 businesses and individuals for their donations towards the project.

“It would have been impossible to achieve anything without them.

“Their partnership has truly played a big role in our current achievement, thus we pray to God to continue blessing them,” said Dolopi.
