Be part of the first NUST Golf Day

NUST is set to host its first Charity Golf Day next month. The event is scheduled to take place on 10 May 2019 at the Omeya Golf Club, and it will take the format of the 18 Hole American Scramble. The Golf Day is the primary fundraising mechanism for the newly established Student Welfare Fund.

The aim of the Fund is to provide financial assistance to differently abled and deserving students, who are pursuing their studies at the University.

“Many of our young people go without a meal for lengthy periods, while others live in areas where healthcare is limited. No person, let alone a student should live in these conditions,” remarked Maurice Garde, the NUST Registrar.

He added that through this Golf Day and other activities, the University aims to raise funds of between N$750 000 and N$1 million, this year.

The Fund will render financial aid to underprivileged students from low-income backgrounds to meet their expenses. These include, tuition fees, purchasing of books and medical expenses, amongst others. Students are required to apply for assistance and provided their need is genuine, in the opinion of the Committee that was created for this purpose, they will qualify as beneficiaries.

The governance framework of the Fund will be predicated on strong systems of accountability and administration, in order to create a responsive and sustainable intervention that will contribute genuinely to student welfare. Therefore, NUST appeals to the business community and all socially conscious corporate citizens to support this worthy and noble cause.

Sponsors that have pledged their support to date include Nashua, Coca-Cola Namibia, the United Africa Group, Epiroc, NBC and other media houses.
