“The plan for The Fix Scholarship was to expand our services to younger students, as the amount of CVs and applications I was receiving from dynamic individuals who wanted to address problems and encourage within their communities is increasing,” says Moeti. “SDC understand the realities of young South Africans who, for whatever social circumstance have been unable to further their studies and have built an enterprise to be able to address the realities these students face and give them a future,” she concludes.
