- Amaka Amalu, a kind Nigerian woman, helped a cleaner in her former office with an extra job so she could get a university degree
- When they first met in 2017, the cleaner was without means to study although she was well-spoken and responsible
- With Amaka's help, Monsurat is presently a 300-level student at the National Open University
A Nigerian woman, Amaka Amalu, has narrated how she helped a cleaner, Monsurat, in her former office to get a good life and make her a better prospect.
She said when she met the lady, she was very hardworking, well-spoken, lively, and showed a great level of responsibility.
Amaka said that after she had some conversation with her, she realized that Monsurat left secondary school in 2014 and really wanted to continue her education though she did not have a result yet.
The good Samaritan added she was amazed when she made her papers and that prompted her to encourage her to get a university education.
To help her grow her income, Amaka had to get her a weekend job with a friend. Her kindness paid off and Monsurat is now a 300 level student of the National Open University of Nigeria.
It should be noted that before their meeting in 2017, she had already taken makeup classes at a vocational school.
In 2019, Amaka was able to get a job at an oil firm as a cleaner/administrative assistant, a job which sadly was affected by the pandemic.
Meanwhile, We've said it before and we'll say it again, South Africa has brilliant young minds who are doing the most to ensure a better future.
Seven SA scholars were handpicked to study toward degrees at a prestigious international university. In 2016, these scholars took part in a rigorous process to be chosen to study at the Breda University of Applied Sciences campus.
They underwent testing and attended interviews. Now, four years later, these students reaped the rewards of their hard work. On 16 July, the scholars graduated in a drive-through graduation ceremony at the Netherlands university.
Some of these students even managed to bag more than one degree after majoring in both logistics engineering and logistics management.
Briefly.co.za learned a total of 12 Bachelor's degrees, one Honours and three Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Certificates were received by the SA students. Nompumelelo Mbobo, Gwen Sebopa, Nomahlubi Radebe, Cindy Dlamini and Fenesara Kgwedi graduated with double degrees, which means they were studying for both logistics engineering and logistics management.
The students had to complete 12 modules of each logistics management course to be able to graduate with two degrees.
Bokang Lemaoana and Banele Mello graduated with logistics engineering degrees. Lemaoana was also awarded a Honours degree in entrepreneurship.
The students managed to gain first-hand experience in improving logistics and supply chain management processes during their third and fourth years of studies.
They carried out applied research assignments within organisations such as Bidvest Air Cargo, Transnet Engineering, DSV Netherlands, Ekurhuleni Municipality, SOS Children's Villages South Africa, Roman’s Pizza, MAN South Africa, Dutch Quality Group, TIPS Trailer Services Europe, CEVA Logistics, CASS Europe, Jumbo Supermarkets, Össur Europe, Dråpen i Havet, Elco Heating Solutions, and Penske Logistics.
Their hard work was recognised by the SA Embassy in the Netherlands.
