Alumni Members


ALUMNI LAUNCH 14 March 2013 



Were you a bursar supported by ASSET ? We are мото кофры calling on all ex-students to make contact with ASSET and also reconnect with fellow students so that we can establish an ALUMNI !

Our  offices are still at No. 5 Long Street Mowbray.




A group of seven ex bursars from ASSET got together early in 2012 to discuss the feasibility of starting the ASSET Alumni. After a series of meetings conducted on numerous Saturday mornings, an interim Executive Committee was established.  Yes, it happened at last – the long awaited initiative for this amazing non-profit organisation that has changed lives of many from hopeless to success.

It was agreed to launch the Alumni in March 2013!

Our vision is to be a prominent, respected organisation whose members make meaningful contribution to ASSET, current students and to each other. Our mission is to promote the interests of ASSET by strengthening the ties of goodwill and communication between ASSET, the Alumni and students and by maintaining programs to serve their needs.

The alumni represents its interests by gathering a voice for it and facilitate communication. It aims to stand as a support structure to ASSET current students, both on LDP and tertiary, through mentorship, career guidance, counselling, life skills, internship, academic and financial assistances.

I therefore call all the post bursarsand those who are in their final year to join me in this adventurous initiative. All ASSET bursars who have attained a certificate, diploma or degree are eligible to join the alumnito make their positive contribution towards bettering the lives of the hopeless in education.‘Better education for all is our common gaol.’

I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to ASSET for embracing this to happen and to the interim steering committee who has been driving this initiative to its destiny. I wish the alumni and ASSET a new year filled with success and adventurous ideas.


Yours in better education for all


Xolisa Tshongolo

You as a ex- bursar is living testimony of our Vision that was and still is: “To afford students, especially those from disadvantaged communities, the opportunity to enjoy equal access to higher education and to the world of work”.
• You are the legacy that can inspire our current students at ASSET
• You are needed to offer up some of your time and expertise.
• You can serve as rolemodel and mentor to our current students.

We at ASSET know that the thousands of ex students that have been associated with SAIRR (Western Cape) / ASSET over the years WILL make contact with us and each other.

Dear Mr Rbbie,

Congratulation on your appointment as a Director of ASSET and all the best.

I am one of the ex-bursary holder and former Chairman of Student in Action Club. We have tried before to set up an alumni group and due to challenges of the time we put it on hold. However, I would love to be part of this new venture. I believe that Mrs Gwen or Mr Enoch will be able to assist you some of our contacts. I will suggest that you invite ex bursars through facebook as some of them are making use of that platform.

My contacts are as follows: Lihle Mqayi 0761021957 or send an email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Hi there
I had a small chat with Gwen and told her that Im really interested in helping out in any way possible, Im an ex Bursar and at the moment I stand to say I would not be here if it was not for Asset
I was also privilaged enough that Asset helped me until my MA level, they have been hope in the most toughest days
When I lost my dad 2009 I ran to Lyn and she gave me amazing support and last year i lost my mom but one thing Im greatful for she saw me making it enjoyed my graduation last year with me
Asset is hope to many of us in the townships, who feel that becasue of financial limitations we cant make it, but Im proof (not that I have attained it all) that with that extra help one is able to find their intent in life and mine is TO BE THE CHANGE I WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD, MOTIVATING YOUNG PPL AND BRINGING A SIGNIFICANT CHANGE IN OUR EDUCATION SYSTEM!!!

Good Afternoon Comrade Robbie, i am humble and honoured to be associated with organisation such as ASSET. i am therefore i availing myself and i am sure that many Comrades would appreciate and grab the opportunity of participating in the Allumni program. Indeed previously number of effort we made to establish ASSET Allumni, but due to the number of issues including Co-ordination of the ALLUMNI the then program did not kick start well. if there are intention to Re-establish the ASSET ALumni it will be great, i am available to assist.
