Fedhasa bursaries help deserving hospitality students

Nov 11 2015 18:33

Cape Town -  It is estimated that the hospitality industry will generate an estimated R161bn per year - 3.5% of South Africa’s GDP by 2017.

Hospitality management, a part of the service industry, together with the tourism industry not only creates direct revenue for the country, but more jobs than any other industry in South Africa, according to hospitality organisation Fedhasa.

It is with this understanding that Fehasa Cape, a non-profit organisation and private sector’s voice for the hospitality industry to stakeholders and decision makers such as government, have identified investing in education as the biggest return on investment for the industry, and as such established the Fedhasa Cape Youth Bursary.

“The Fedhasa Cape Youth Bursary is our pledge to new members joining our ranks that this industry rewards a commitment to education and when coupled with experience, members are well on their way to success,” says Noli Mini, Fedhasa Youth chair.

“As an added bonus we have offered our bursary winners a free Fedhasa Cape Youth membership to encourage them in their future studies and journey through the industry.”

The Fedhasa Cape Youth Bursary is open to students and trainees currently in the employ or studying at Fedhasa Cape member institutions and establishments. Entrants should have successfully completed their second year of study and have entered or will be entering their third year of study.
The 2015 recipients of the bursaries - the funds having been raised from the proceeds of the 2015 Fedhasa Cape/Nederburg Annual Golf Day at the Pearl Valley Golf & Country Estate - are Thaakiyah Ajam and Veruscha Louw. Both are full time hospitality management students at the International Hotel School.
