Testimonials

 “While I was doing my Diploma in Electrical Engineering, the university refused to register students who owed it more than R3 500. I owed it R19 000. I asked the Dr Oscar Dhlomo Foundation for help and they replied, and paid all the money I owed within a short time. I was therefore able to proceed with my subjects. I’d like to thank the foundation for what it did for me because today, my two brothers and I have our own electrical company.”   “I’m truly grateful to have been a recipient of the Dr Oscar Dhlomo Foundation sponsorship. By having this sponsorship, I was relieved of the financial burden I faced going into university. This helped me to focus more on the aspect of learning. You not only helped me, but also my family by lifting the financial burden associated with higher education off my mother’s shoulders. It was only through this sponsorship that I was able to graduate and get a BSc majoring in computer science. I was able to communicate my needs and during my course, I never lacked for stationery or books. Thank you again for your generosity. I’m currently working as an enterprise resource planning graduate trainee, hoping to become a SAP consultant in the near future. Some people were born for greatness and to impact other people’s lives. The Dr Oscar Dhlomo Foundation changed my life and my status, as a rejected and controversial child in the community, by sponsoring me academically. It made me a graduate and a respected member of the community. I’ll forever be grateful for this. Because of such organisations, people like me have hope for the future. Ngahlanga nomama Dhlomo ngo 2011. Ekuhlangane kwami naye ngangi nengane I na 3 months ngifisa ukuqubeka nezifundo zami but ngangingenayo imali yokuqubeka. Lapho engangisebeza khona ngangihola R1000 ngenyanga. U Mrs Dhlomo ngangimusiza ngokumufundisa I computer ngangingazi ukuthi ukumusiza kwami kuzongisiza ukuba ngibenhlanhla yokuba ngithole ithuba engangililangezelele ukuba name ngithole ithuba lokuba ngifunde. U Mrs Dhlomo wangisiza ngokuba ngiqubeke nokufunda ngeze I Degree of education. Ngiyabonga, umusa ujehova angipha wona ukuthi nami ngibenhlanhla yokuthola isinkwa saphakade sefundo. Ukuhlanga no Mrs Dhlomo kwangisiza ngazibona ngingumuntu. Ngifundile empilweni ukuthi ungalilahli ithemba kukho konke okufisayo ngoba ngelinye ilanga kuyokwezeka akubalulekile ukuthi kuyokwezeka nini uma nje unokukholwa kuyokwezeka. Ngiliye ilanga umfundisi wathi ngeke simubone ujesu ngamehlo but uyoletha umuntu oyomela yena. Ngibonile empilweni yami ukuthi ngempela kuyiqiniso ngibone n go Mrs Dhlomo. uyikho konke kumina ungu mama uyi role modern yami. Ngiyabonga, Mrs Dhlomo, ngokungiphaisinkwa saphakade esingeke ngasiphuncwa muntu infundo. I come from Umlazi and am currently working at Ethekwini Electricity as a Candidate Electrical Technician. In 2013, I was suspended from the Mangosuthu University of Technology – where I was studying electrical engineering – because my parents couldn’t pay the amount of R18 000 I owed in fees. The Dr Oscar Dhlomo Foundation granted me a bursary, with which I managed to complete my studies and now I’m working as a result of that. I’m very grateful to everyone who contributed, especially Mr Lwazi Dhlomo and his associates. My wish is that the foundation will continue helping students in need of financial assistance, as it did for me.
