Join Prof Thuli Madonsela in walking to end student debt
16 June @ 8:30 am - 2:00 pmR540
Prof Thuli Madonsela, Chair in Social Justice at Stellenbosch University’s (SU) Faculty of Law,, the Student Representative Council (SRC) and the Development and Alumni Relations Division (DAR), in partnership with Visit Stellenbosch, warmly invite you to the #Action4Inclusion Social Justice Walk taking place on Thursday, 16 June 2022 from 08h30 to 14h00.
The walk is part of ongoing fundraising efforts to end student debt and free the potential of students so that they can participate meaningfully in the development of our country. #Action4Inclusion is one of the many initiatives that fall under the University’s Annual Fund, Bridge the Gap, which enables the community, staff, alumni, parents and friends to support our students and close the gap between talent and financial need.
The #Action4Inclusion Social Justice Walk will be attended by SU Rector and Vice-Chancellor, Prof Wim De Villiers, Executive Mayor of Cape Town Geordin Hill-Lewis, and Municipal Manager of the Stellenbosch Municipality, Geraldine Mettler.
The route of 16km will start at the Rhenish church on Die Braak and up the old Helshoogte Pass, ending in Pniël where Professor Madonsela will deliver a keynote address.
Although this is a fundraising event for the #Action4Inclusion campaign, it is also an opportunity to embrace social justice against the backdrop of our country’s troubled history. This event aims to acknowledge past injustices and seeks to promote renewed hope, inspiration, and collaboration between diverse stakeholders.
