Vaal University of Technology (VUT) is very conscious of reaching out to the community. The Department of Corporate Affairs, the 2018 SRC and the Student Counselling and Support Department initiated an Examination Feeding Scheme to provide underprivileged students with a meal per day from 1-15 June during exam time.

This was promoted by the slogan: “No Student Writes Examinations on an Empty Stomach”, which served to encourage students to study and pass without having to worry about hunger. Donations were received from the office of the Director of Marketing and Public Relations; Ms Kediemetse Mokotsi who also donated groceries to postgraduate students. External companies that donated were Thusong Projects, President Hyper Vaal and Emerald Resort & Casino.

Ms Mokotsi said that they are here to support students and encourage them to finish their studies. She further said that struggling international students were also beneficiaries of the groceries.
In closing, the Vesco Group Managing Director Ms Lindiwe Mahlangu left a message of support to students: “I wish all the best to students. They should study hard and take the opportunity that they have been given to their own advantage; never waste the time you have but utilise it accordingly,” she said.
