NCWQ has great pleasure in releasing the E-Yearbook of the 2021 NCWQ Bursary recipients. With COVID-uncertainties, this has proved a great way of bringing together the stories of the 35 recipients in this year’s program.
Enjoy “meeting” each recipient, hearing about possible obstacles that they have dealt with, their current studies, and their dreams for the future. These are the stories that give us optimism for the future.
