The Southern African Clothing & Textile Workers' Union (SACTWU) Bursary fund has produced 47 graduates at universities and colleges last year, a report tabled at the union's recently held National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting shows.

Of these 47 graduates, 33 were awarded degrees and 14 were awarded diplomas. This brings to 535 graduates (309 degrees and 226 diplomas) produced by the union's bursary fund scheme, over the last 6 years' alone. Over this period, the union has paid out R19m in bursary fund assistance.

Amongst last year's graduates are lawyers, chartered accountants, chemists, economists, geologists, microbiologists, pharmacists, physiotherapists, social workers, teachers, and ICT Specialists.

These graduates are children of union members, mostly from the poorest parts of the country. It is a proud trade union contribution to help poor communities with access to higher and further education, and to help plug the skills shortage in the country.

Last year alone, the union paid out R3.3m in bursaries.
