An End-of-Year Event for our Bursary Students

The end of the academic year has come around again and to celebrate Masicorp recently took our bursary students out for lunch at The Fisherman’s Pub & Grill in Kommetjie.

Good day

I am writing this letter to show my appreciation to the Masicorp bursary program. You might have already been told about the goodness and effectiveness of the work that you do, but I think it is of utmost importance that you are constantly reminded that your work is, indeed, touching lives.The existence of this bursary program has had a significant and a profound impact on the life of Masiphumelele community as a whole.

If it was not for the selflessness that the members and volunteers of Masicorp had shown, I would not have made it this far in life.

Believe me, your work in the community is, for all intents and purposes, changing lives. Your work deserve recognition. Unlike most bursary programs, you show concern about the well being of the students. I believe that you are the catalyst of change in that community.

I say all this from the bottom of my heart, Thank you Masicorp.

Well done to all of our bursary students that have completed another year of higher education – and we look forward to another successful year in 2015.
