Vice-Chancellor hosts students in NSH Programme
2012-10-23

The No Student Hungry programme (NSH) at the university is growing meal by meal and students in the programme were treated at the home of Prof. Jonathan Jansen, Vice-Chancellor and Rector, and his wife, Grace.

The NSH provides food allowances for a daily balanced meal to needy students. More than 100 students are assisted in this way so that they are able to focus on their studies without worrying about were their next meal is to come from.

Prof. Jansen donated the proceeds of his book Knowledge in the Blood to establish the project. Grace and Dr Carin Buys, wife of Mr Rudi Buys, Dean of Student Affairs, are the patrons of the project.

Students apply for the allowances and are selected on the basis of financial need, academic results, active participation in student life programmes and commitment to give something back to the community.

You too can contribute R10 at a time to the NSH programme.
