For Coloured Girls Bursary South Africa 2024
ABOUT THE BURSARY PROVIDER – FOR COLOURED GIRLS
For Coloured Girls Bursary South Africa 2024 | For Coloured Girls is a non-profit organisation whose main aim is to provide resources and support to young coloured girls, from grades 8 to 12, in order for them to achieve academic success. For Coloured Girls aims to help those from underprivileged communities who have no access to academic or other learning resources.
The organisation believes that through its foundation, a change in the lives of these young women can be made leading to positive outcomes as well as the prevention of many risky behaviours. The organisation further echos this by providing young girls with the proper assistance needed to make healthy long term decisions about their lives that will impact both them and their families in a positive manner. For Coloured Girls conducts all its work based on its beliefs, principles and values- respect, integrity, professionalism, and responsibility.
