Dr Iqbal Survé Bursary Trust
The bursary, initiated by Dr Iqbal Survé provides learners with the opportunity to further their studies at universities, technikons and specialised academies. Many of these young South African men and women aspire to become qualified professionals within various sectors and are afforded this opportunity through the trust.
The bursary is directed to the poorest students who, without the support of the bursary, would lack the funds and resources to fulfil their dreams. The bursary fulfils the country’s dire need for more professionals. It aims to improve the accessibility to better education for a broader base of South Africans. The bursary includes the promotion of high school and tertiary education in the country. To date more than 25 students have benefitted from the bursary.
Mandela School of Science and Technology
Mvezo is a small village in the Eastern Cape, and the birthplace of former President and struggle hero of South Africa, Nelson Mandela. It had been a lifelong dream for Mandela to build a secondary school in this village.
Inspired by Mandela’s dream, and the possibility of many more gifted, future heroes of South Africa coming from Mvezo; Dr Iqbal Survé partnered with Siemens (as a main investor) to build the Mandela School of Science and Technology.
