Rankapole added, “We have an initiative we call #GiveWhatYouCan whereby students, staff and anyone anywhere can donate whatever it is that they can. We accept any form of donation: food, clothes, toiletr[ies] and books.”
Rankapole encourages students to take part in the initiative. She said: “We face so many challenges as students, and having to worry about where [you] will get [your] meal(s) for the day, what clothes [you’re] going to wear since there is only two or three pairs of clothing [you have] because [you] can’t afford to buy any, or even worrying about hygiene because [you don’t] have toiletr[ies]; and on top of that prepare for a lecture or test coming up is stressful. So [by] helping out in this initiative [you will be] helping your fellow student.”
Donations can be made at the Marketing Services building at Ms. Jacqui Petersen’s office (Room 1-4). Donations can also be made during the Young Corporate Leaders (YCL)’s Women of Worth event, which will be held on 5 August.
