What better way to prepare future students for University life, than with current students sharing their experiences and being a guiding light? The Transformation Council of the Campus Student Representative Council (CSRC), of the North-West University Vaal Triangle Campus (NWU Vaal), embarked on such an outreach programme on 22 October 2016, at the informal settlements in the Vaalower community.


Thabang Mokoena, CSRC Transformation Officer explains that the purpose of the initiative, “was to reach out to the youth of the community for empowerment and support”.

The day consisted of the Transformation Council, as well as students from different residences take part in educational, social and cultural sessions, with regards to not only University life, but to balancing both academic and private life. The NWU Vaal students not only came to share their stories, but also to give back to the community, by donating clothing and food items. “We [Transformation Council] deeply appreciate all that the students have done”, says Mokoena.

The Transformation Council’s 2016/2017 vision, for community service, is to challenge NWU Vaal students and societies to not only focus of developed areas, but to also identify disadvantaged areas “where there is youth that needs exposure to motivation, encouragement and education in order to alleviate societal issues like human trafficking, drug & alcohol abuse and unemployment” states Mokoena.
