SASI enjoying the Art of Graffiti

Telfed's Scholarship department organised a fun morning out for our Southern Africans Studying in Israel (SASI). The Southern Africans Studying in Israel (SASI) programme offers needs-based housing grants to Southern African students in Israel through the Eric and Sheila Samson Foundation. These students, studying in Israel as tourists, are enjoying world class university education in Israel, in English. In addition to a scholarship, the students are given an opportunity to explore Israel and meet like-minded students from a similar background. The youth enjoyed a fun-filled morning in the pulsating city of Tel Aviv, learning about art and pop culture. The SASI student coordinator, Rebecca Newstadt wrote the following:

"After months of preparation, I was so excited to finally meet this year’s SASI students face to face. The tour was given by three amazing guides who knew exactly how to engage with a group of apprehensive, young Southern African students. As we toured the streets and alleyways of the Florentine neighbourhood we were treated to fascinating stories behind some of the amazing artwork that decorates the streets. We were captivated by the stories. We finished off the day with great “shakshuka”, an authentic Israeli dish. This was an unexpected treat for the new students. We had a wonderful time getting to know each other and we look forward to the next event."
