The Feenix Trust

Feenix was launched in June 2017 as a response to the #FeesMustFall movement that spread across campuses in South Africa during 2015 and 2016. This movement highlighted the extremely high cost of tertiary education and the impact financial stress has on student success rates.
We created Feenix, an online fundraising platform that connects communities; providing a tool for students to formalize their fundraising efforts and a channel for funders to find students they wish to support.
Feenix has started a COVID-19 relief fund to support students that don't have the access to continue their studies via online learning. We also provide food vouchers and data.
