MBABANE – A good deed never goes unnoticed.

This best describes Lend a Hand Foundation’s latest initiative, which constitutes providing free accommodation for a needy student from an underprivileged background. The foundation was formed in 2018 at the UNESWA Luyengo campus, with the aim of assisting vulnerable students as they navigate their way around university life. In a bid to do things differently as they aim to better the lives of students, the foundation has embarked on a venture to assist a vulnerable first or second year student from the University of Eswatini (UNESWA), Luyengo Campus.
The foundation’s Communications Officer, Mihlenhle Mkhwanazi, when reached for comment, said they would be offering this one-room flat to a student who needed it the most.

She mentioned that the one-room house was fully furnished and would be paid for the duration of occupancy by the foundation. “As part of the foundation’s commitment to support needy students in their academic journey, we have presented an occupied one-roomed fully-furnished house with bedding, cooking utensils and study table around Luyengo. “We are looking for an underprivileged student or an orphan, preferably a first or second year student from the university campus whom the organisation can provide accommodation for,” said Mkhwanazi.
She further highlighted that they were inviting deserving students to visit the assistant dean of students affairs office in order to stand a chance to be selected.

Mkhwanazi mentioned that they would select the students based on reliable information sourced from credible stakeholders such as the administration of the school and the students’ acquaitances, in order to get accurate background information. “We will be working with the institution’s psychologist and the administration which commonly has the background information of the students. We will use the information given to compare and ascertain which of the students require assistance the most,” she said.
