The campaign which started over the weekend has been well received in the midst of the widespread national Fees Must Fall Protests protest . The goal is to raise R1 million by today, 17 March.
Money collected during the campaign will go towards the registration fees of students at universities and TVET colleges who are currently being financially excluded due to a lack of funds.
This campaign was started by Social Media Sensation Lasizwe Dambuza with the help of #R10GoesALongWay team members: Event Agency Owner, Sibu Mabena, Internationally renowned choreographer, Takkies & Marketing Manager, Ayandamantombazane Mhlongo.
Kaya Breakfast spoke to Nkateko ‘Takkies’ Dinwiddy, a choreographer and all-around influencer.

She broke down why this campaign is so important in for students in need of assistance.
“It helps to see that hope, to help students to at least get their foot through the door of an education institution. This will also take away the fear of the unknown from parents, who don’t have funds.”
How it all started and how it’s going:
Short story: @lasizwe went live on Insta at 22:00 to ask students how he can help raise funds to help the Uni Fees Pandemic. It’s been 2 hours and we’ve raised R29 000 so far through a campaign we started on the live. #R10GoesALongWay
