"Miss Jabavu" continues community outreach with donation of study material


Named after one of South Africa's greats, John Tengo Jabavu, students at this famous Fort Hare residence took some time doing community project as part of their activities for the year when they supplied study guides, focusing on Mathematics and Science material, and application forms to students in Nzululwazi high school and Pandulwazi agricultural high school on 10 September.

This intervention follows a three week long public service strike that deterred some learners from attending career exhibition recently hosted by Fort Hare University. Jabavu committee led by warden and matron encouraged learmers to prepare early for the coming matric examinations and should always avoid putting themselves under unnecessary pressure.

The main reason for this project is to make university of Fort Hare a solution to its community, said Mr Siviwe Mapipa.

Popular for its men only show "Miss Jabavu" that served as source to fund this community work project and have just held another successful one to contribute to other schools before the actual sitting of end year exams, said Siviwe.

Mawande Mzizi, Chuma Ka Dondolo and Vusi Nhlapho were the actual winners in the contest that continues to gain momentum like other traditional events like Miss Fort Hare.
