Bonang Matheba is determined to give more young girls a tertiary education over the next few years through her Bonang Matheba Bursary Fund
Taking to Twitter earlier this week, B revealed that she’s set herself a goal of 300 girls by 2021.
“My target is to send 300 girls to university by 2021. Crazy but possible,” she tweeted.
Bonang, who received the first ever ‘5 For Change’ award over the weekend for her work with young women, also revealed that she had partnered with an organisation and that 10 more girls would be going to school next year.

Bonang launched the Bonang Matheba Bursary Fund last year after she was approached by a young woman for help in paying her registration fees.
B agreed to pay R6 500 towards the young woman’s fees but later decided to award 10 young girls full bursaries.
