"Since 2014 the HCI foundation helped to pay for my tuition but not only that I got a family with HCI. I would like to thank you so much. Today I am a graduate because of the help and support HCI gave me. With HCI Foundation I became a mentor to a first year and also a mentee to a manager from Seartec. This helped me academically and to grow holistically.",
"I would like to thank you for awarding me a 2017 HCI Foundation partial bursary. I look forward to having the opportunity to complete my fourth year of my studies at the University of Pretoria. Thank you once again.",
