Gift of the Givers replaces flood-damaged desktops at MUT
The adage, ‘show me your friends and I will tell you who you are’, has never been truer. With floods damaging computer laboratories at Mangosuthu University of Technology (MUT), MUT turned to Gift of the Givers for assistance.
On 15 June 2022, Professor Marcus Ramogale, Acting Vice-Chancellor & Principal at MUT, will officially unveil the new desktops from Gift of the Givers.
“We are humbled that the Gift of the Givers Foundation has once again come to our aid with a generous donation that will give our students more access to education especially at a time when tertiary education is moving away from face-to-face platforms to virtual ones,” said Professor Ramogale.
This gift, which comes during Youth Month, is further evidence of the institution’s commitment to the wellbeing and success of its students who are the future.
