Applications for Funding Initiative To Close Soon

Please share this article


Students who can't afford registration fees have one last chance to apply to the '#R10GoesALongWay' initiative. The brainchild of four friends, the project raised over 2-million rand in five days last year, to help the most deserving students. 


Applications for the initiative are coming to a close on Saturday. 

Chief Marketing Officer of the Fundi Foundation, Mala Suriah says that the initiative was originally started by social media activist and celebrity, Lasizwe Dambuza last year in January. 

This was in an effort to ensure that prospective students don’t find themselves financially stranded when it is time to pay for their university registration. 

Following this, Damuza approached Fundi to administer the generated funds in a credible and transparent way and marked the birth and continuation of the initiative.

The programme merely requires a minimum of R10 donation from any willing citizen or organisation and all the accumulated funds will go towards as many students who need financial assistance in paying for their registration fees.

Since it started last year, the programme has received more than 90 000 applications and managed to assist 106 students to register various Colleges and Universities across the country.

To apply, students can visit to download and fill out the application form. The only requirement is that you must be a South African citizen who has registered at any of the country’s higher education institutions, with your proof acceptance letter and I.D number.

There will then be a public draw in the middle of February after the closing application deadline and the number of students assisted will depend on how much has been raised.
