Farhad was born and raised in the rural community of Chiveli, 10km outside the town on Colenso in KwaZulu-Natal.
Chiveli is an under-resourced community and like many others in this area, Farhad had dreams of furthering his studies after completing school, but would not have the financial means to do so.
After completing his matric at the Ladysmith Islamic Education Centre, Farhad approached SANZAF for financial assistance.
SANZAF assisted in paying for Farhad’s studies, and in 2014 he obtained a teaching degree from Varsity College in Pietermaritzburg.
Farhad has since gotten married and is employed as a teacher in the small town of Winterton, KwaZulu-Natal. He is also assisting his mother to renovate her house in Chiveli.
