The Ruth First Jeppe Memorial Trust Annual Function was held at Jeppe High School for Girls on the 26th October 2016. Once again, it was a phenomenal event, and we wish to thank everyone who attended. our donors and most importantly our Ruth First Beneficiaries of 2017.
This year, we had the honour and privilege of hearing from internationally renowned political activist and friend of Ruth, Mr Ahmed Katharda.
In closing of the sixth Ruth First event, another surprise awaited our guests and scholars. At the 11th hour special guest Sophie De Bruyn, although not sure she would be able to, presented a short speech and enouraged the girls to make a difference; quoting Ruth First, "Education is the Power of Everything".
