Mbali Nomalungelo Xaba

My name is Mbali Nomalungelo Xaba, recently graduated from Stellenbosch university. I am writing this testimonial to express my profound gratitude to the Ikusasa Student Financial Aid Programme (ISFAP). Being a recipient of the ISFAP bursary has significantly impacted my educational journey.
I started 2023 with no funding and no hope of getting any. I had to spend the first 6 months (from Feb to June) with no funding; no money for rent, food, transport, and books. It was a very stressful time for me, doing final year and being stressed about finance, but ISFAP came through for me. From the moment I was awarded the ISFAP bursary, I felt a tremendous sense of relief. The financial support provided has allowed me to focus on my studies without the constant worry about tuition fees and other educational expenses. This bursary has been instrumental in making my academic pursuits a reality, and for that, I am truly grateful.
Beyond the financial assistance, I have found ISFAP to be a supportive and understanding organization. The application process was straightforward, and their team was always available to answer any queries I had. The communication has been clear and transparent, contributing to a stress-free experience.
One aspect that stands out about ISFAP is their commitment to empowering students from disadvantaged backgrounds. The program not only provides financial aid but also encourages and supports personal and professional development. Through workshops, mentorship programs, and networking opportunities, ISFAP goes above and beyond to ensure that its beneficiaries have the tools they need to succeed not only academically but also in their future careers.
I would like to express my sincere appreciation to ISFAP for making a significant difference in my life. This bursary has opened doors and created opportunities that I once thought were beyond my reach. I am proud to be associated with an organization that is dedicated to breaking down financial barriers and empowering the next generation of leaders.
In conclusion, I wholeheartedly recommend the Ikusasa Student Financial Aid Programme to any student in need of financial support. My experience with ISFAP has been nothing short of transformative, and I am grateful for the positive impact it has had on my education and prospects.
