Zanele Jonas and Kombisile Mthethwa have been awarded bursaries through The Rialto Project to Simon’s Town Lawhill Maritime Centre in Cape Town. The three year bursaries are funded by the Community Property Fund.
Rialto Project scholars, Joshua Mbana and Kumeshnie Nair are in their final year at Simon’s Town Lawhill Maritime Centre in Cape Town. They returned to Lawhill on the 8th of June 2020 after learning remotely from home since the end of March 2020 as a result of the nationwide COVID-19 Lockdown.
The Rialto Project is a registered non-profit company with the purpose of bridging the education divide in South Africa, and in so doing making a difference in the lives of individuals, families and communities.
