We as DASO NMMU are greatly concerned about the many students that will be denied the opportunity to study further this year, due to the NSFAS crisis.
We believe that a student should not be excluded from education because of their financial background. We stand together with the DA Youth in calling upon the Minister of the Department of Higher Education and Training, Dr. Blade Nzimande, to ensure that no student is left behind.
Even though we are no longer in governance at NMMU, we continue to assist and speak as the voice of our students in the best way we can under the difficult circumstance that we are facing of an inefficient and an inadequate governance from our current NMMU SRC.
DASO NMMU has been instrumental in championing access and success in the past three years at NMMU and we are of the opinion that the students and the public should be aware of the success DASO has championed in the student community. Not only have we championed access, we have also managed to create a living and learning environment for students which is part of our mandate.
Our continuous mission as DASO NMMU is to connect with our students, and take daso to the students through efficient governance and service. We mean to be very clear that DASO is an organization that develops young leaders and not just students to be deployed into the SRC.
We will continue to have an open door policy in our offices on all four of the NMMU campus during this time and throughout the year, in which students can come forward with their student problems and we will assist them to the best of our ability.
