South African Washington Internship Programme (SAWIP ) Student’s Request for Funding

Asalaamu alaykum

My name is Fazlin Fransman, and Im a final year humanities student at the
University of Stellenbosch. I have recently been accepted into an internship
programme named the South African Washington Internship Programme (SAWIP ).
This internship programme takes student from the three universities in the
western cape, and gives them the opportunity to intern in washington. I will
most probably be interning in either the Congress : Senate or the White house,
depending on where I get placed.

This is an opportunity of a lifetime, for someone like me, who comes from a
sub-economic area.

One of The requirements of the programme is fundraising. We as the twelve
selected, have to each raise six thousand rand, to contribute to our trip to
washington. The total cost of the trip is R60 000, of which we get  R54 000
subsidised. The remaining R 6 000 we have to raise through sponsorships.

I have an avid interest in politics, and hope to one-day enter the political
field, this internship programme I hope will give me a jump-start in this

Attached is my CV, an a Official acceptance letter from SAWIP.

I ask you, to please consider the above, and to help me in this regard, or
forward me to someone who might be able to asist me.

Thanking you in anticipation

Fazlin Fransman
