Help a student in need look their best on graduation day #DressAGraduate
Most students in South Africa struggle with paying outstanding fees, which means they cannot graduate or get their certificate after completing a course.
Sadly, this also means they can't get a job.
When Ruby Chikwiri realised her plight of not being able to pay her outstanding fees, she decided not to give in to her woes and rather created a platform to help graduating students find outfits for their big day.
She asked social media users to donate shoes or outfits for graduates under #DressAGraduate.
