DJ Fix, not only a radio and TV star, set up the Fix Scholarship – a non-profit organisation that provides educational and business bursary opportunities for Female Entrepreneurs in Africa that want to create social change in their communities.
Fix has always believed that business, arts and social development and the impact thereof, are not mutually exclusive so decided to head back to school to study social enterprise in the US and by undertaking this journey Fix has managed to fund 13 students through the Fix Scholarship and will be opening applications for the next student intake through SDC this coming May from today, 6 February 2020.
Daniel Gibhard, CEO of The Skills Development Corporation says, “We have never been oblivious to the privileged position we’re in to be able to educate young South Africans through the various programmes and courses we offer. To be able to work with such an incredibly dynamic media personality who has made education for women a social development priority is amazing to be a part of.”
