Vulamathuba Empumelelo Bursary Fund (VEBF) for Young South Africans: Apply

Vulamathuba Empumelelo, the community and social development arm of Communicare Social Enterprise, was established to deliver developmental interventions to Communicare tenants and non-tenants residing within Cape Town. Vulamathuba’s overall objective is to create opportunities for the economic growth of participants by fostering the principle of Economic Mobility through skills, training, and development interventions.

Vulamathuba administers the Vulamathuba Empumelelo Bursary Fund (VEBF). The bursary allows recipients to pursue tertiary education, enhancing their self-reliant and financially mobile capacity. The principal purpose of the Fund is to give financial aid to Communicare tenants and individuals from previously marginalized communities who have academic potential yet are economically disadvantaged and looking to pursue a qualification that is described as a scarce or critical skill.
