Safmarine announced today (15 July 2010) it has established a scholarship in the memory of Transnet National Ports Authority cadet, Akhona Felicity Geveza, who died tragically at sea on June 24, 2010 while undergoing her on-board sea training on the containership Safmarine Kariba.

According to Safmarine’s Africa Region Executive, Jonathan Horn, “The scholarship will allow three young South Africans to complete the three-year Maritime Studies Programme at Simon’s Town High School. This programme, which was pioneered by Safmarine in 1995, has made a real and visible difference in the lives of many young South Africans by providing them with maritime-related skills while they are still at school.”

The Akhona Geveza Memorial Scholarship will cover the costs of tuition, books and accommodation for three learners boarding at the Lawhill Maritime Centre in Simon’s Town.
