Blessed Gérard’s Bursary Fund

continues to help needy students and pupils from the local area to fund their studies. The Bursary Fund has paid out close to R90,000.00 in school fees and other fees during 2004 for more than 50 pupils and students. This has enabled many children to go to school and has given a chance to two of our members and care-givers to study nursing at St. Mary’s Nursing College in Mariannhill near Durban. Three more members are busy with a Child Care course and another has completed a computer course.

We feel very strongly that education is fundamental in breaking the vicious cycle of poverty and alleviating the harsh realities of unemployment.
