Mental health activist
Anele Siswana, a Master’s student in Clinical Psychology from the Department of Psychology at Rhodes University, is proof that giving, no matter how small, can make a big difference to the person on the receiving end. He is the first recipient of the Canon Collins Scholars’ Scholarship, a scholarship set up by a group of Canon Collins Scholarship recipients.
The Canon/Collins Educational & Legal Assistance Trust is a programme that promotes education and human and constitutional rights. It’s programmes include: • Scholarships for postgraduate study in the UK and in Southern Africa; Public advocacy for and by poor and marginalized communities.
Together they were able to raise enough money to fund one scholarship, and plan to do so every year.
