Moshal Scholarship Programme calls on companies to hire its graduates

The Moshal Scholarship Programme has put out a call to companies all over the country to employ its graduates.

The foundation which started in 2010 finds impoverished children in the country with potential and sends them to the top universities to pursue their degrees. It currently has 470 students and 210 alumni.

The foundation's Jody Bailey and two of their alumni students, Nonhlanhla Seroke and Sewa Matlapang joined Joanne Joseph in studio to share their experiences and how the foundation is helping children further their education.

I was born and bred in Kagiso, I lived with my family in a two room shack and sometimes we would have to on without electricity so for me that made me want to do more and get my family out of that circumstance. I just got a house for my family which is a great accomplishment.

Nonhlanhla Seroke, Moshal Foundation alumni

There was so much support from the beginning. They have been incredibly supportive, the scholarship has a mentorship group and tutoring group so even if you are struggling with a subject there is someone who is ahead of you in terms of your academic year and they are always happy to help.

Bailey explains why they are urging companies to either accommodate their students for vacation work or hire their graduates.

Our call really would be to ask corporates to help us with either vac work or things like job shadowing, internships, graduate programmes or at the end of the day offering our graduates full time employment.

Jody Bailey

We feel that in an economy like this, our students are so well-equipped to go into the workplace so it's a win-win for corporates.

Jody Bailey

We only do the STEM [science, technology, engineering and maths] subjects.
