Press Release: Young Women’s Scholarship Dinner

Tuesday, 06 July 2010 02:00
Even as we develop and progress as a democracy, women face discrimination and prejudice. Yet, women all over the country continue to work hard to make a difference — to better their lives and the lives of others. Anex would like to assist more women to make a difference through empowering them with the opportunity to further themselves through education.

“Education is a companion which no future can depress, no crime can destroy, no enemy can alienate it and no nepotism can enslave.” – Ropo Oguntimehin

Through the work of the youth programme in the Central Karoo, the organisation has realised that there are many young women who have matriculated and have ambitions to further their studies, however due to lack of funds, are unable to do so. Although the programme does make bursary information available to youth in the area, the organisation has decided to address this need by initiating a scholarship for young women specifically from this area to study at a tertiary institution

The first event focused on raising funds for the Young Women’s Scholarship will be a dinner to be held on the 4th of August at 18h20 at the Crusaders Memorial Sports Club in Greenpoint.

All proceeds from this dinner will go towards the scholarship for the 2011 period. The ticket price of R300 includes a full dinner as well as entertainment for the evening.

We hope that you can assist us to give the gift of education to a young woman from the rural Western Cape
