Ngwamba was there as a guest of the founder of the organisation, Mr Luyanda Meyiwa.

Many high school learners in Imbali do not receive sufficient career guidance before progressing into higher education institutions and are often unaware of the many career prospects available.

So Ngwamba considered the exhibition as an opportunity for the School to better understand the plight of youngsters in the area and to engage with them before they leave school.

‘Events like these are important for community engagement, because we have to explain the programmes we offer to interested learners and how through studying at UKZN they can make an impact on society and be agents of change in their communities and families. It also gave us an opportunity to initiate partnerships programmes with the community,’ said Ngwamba.

‘We need to bridge the gap that exists between universities and communities. We can only be a better and relevant institution of higher learning, if we have the ability to produce knowledge that responds to the direct needs of our communities.’
