Frequently Asked Questions
How do the bursaries work?
An applicant will apply on line by sharing their stories as to why they want to apply to the foundation. This could be anything. Such as ballet lessons, guitar lessons, a paid tutor, mental wellness; the list goes on. Once the applicant is accepted it will be peer to peer. Meaning if an applicant wants the foundation to fund a bike the applicant will get a bike. There will be no cash given. It will be exactly what the applicant wants or needs. Providing help provides empowerment and engagement for our youth.
