ISFAP Launches New Funding Campaign


ISFAP has officially launched their ISFAP thirty, seventy crowdfunding campaign, which aims to help students receive funding to pursue their dreams. ISFAP has decided to partner with BackaBuddy in this campaign.


The Ikusasa Student Financial Aid Programme (ISFAP) was established in an effort to assist students with the costs of studying at Higher Education Institutions.

ISFAP has officially launched their ISFAP thirty, seventy crowdfunding campaign, in partnership with BackaBuddy.

BackaBuddy is a South African crowdfunding platform designed to assist individuals in creating their own online campaign to raise funds for causes that they are passionate about.

The ISFAP thirty, seventy crowdfunding campaign aims to assist students with raising funds for their tertiary education.

This campaign is a pilot project and should it be successful, the concept will be rolled out into further iterations. 

Three students have been selected to participate in the pilot phase. The three students include Omolemo Tlomatsane, Sailin Vadivelu, and Nsuku Raphela. 

Omolemo Tlomatsane is studying towards BSC Civil Engineering at Wits University and Sailin Vadivelu and Nsuku Raphela studies MBChB at the University of Pretoria.

These students need to crowdfund for 30% of the target amount needed for their studies and if they are successful, ISFAP will cover the remaining 70% of their fees.

However, if they do not raise the 30%, all the funds raised on the BackaBuddy platform will be returned to the donors/students.

ISFAP and BackaBuddy encourage individuals to help these students reach their goals through donating towards their fees.
