Do take time to read Lequan’s interview. Our new students for 2013 have been recruited and are we are now seeking to expand our team of peer and professional mentors. Join us.
A special Thank You to our Corporate Sponsors, Linklaters, for their ongoing support. We are also very pleased to announce that Hangar Seven and Cititec have each committed to a 3-year sponsorship of The Amos Bursary. More about Hangar Seven and Cititec in our next newsletter.

Fundraising to grow the Bursary is top of our agenda and we do hope that you will take this opportunity to donate much needed funds or your time, in support of the Bursary. Finally, our Annual Fundraising Dinner and Auction, will be held on the evening of Thursday, 4 July 2013. Further information will be circulated early next month.

Happy reading.
