Chris Mabunda, a WITS university student and one of 35 student entrepreneurs from around the world was selected to attend the annual Global Entrepreneurship Summer School (GESS) programme in Munich Germany.
Chris was selected after he started a project in 2016 that manufactures eco-friendly bricks and cement from waste materials to assist people living in rural areas to build low cost housing. However, Chris encountered an obstacle of funding to cover his flight to Germany. An individual contacted SANZAF and explained Chris’s situation to which a decision was made to sponsor Chris’s trip to Germany. An ecstatic Chris departed from SANZAF full of smiles and eager to further develop his skills.

This May marked SANZAF’s (South African National Zakah Fund) fifth annual Adopt-a-granny Campaign. The project aims to allow school students to give back to their communities in a meaningful way. Students identify deserving elderly women in their communities and then treat them to breakfast and a winter-warmth shopping spree.
The project, which appreciates Islam’s concern for the elderly, allows students to learn about this important Islamic value through experience. It is thought that spending quality time with community elders will not only bring joy to the elders but also impact the way in which students view the elderly and their responsibility towards them and humanity as a whole.
