Garden Cities Bursary South Africa 2023 – 2024
ABOUT THE BURSARY PROVIDER – GARDEN CITIES
Garden Cities Bursary South Africa | Garden Cities was established in 1919 in South Africa, by businessman and politician Richard Stuttaford, who took inspiration from Sir Ebenezer Howard, a British urban planner who proposed that new town should be planned to provide pleasant living environments for people who lived in the slums during and after the first World War.
Over 100 years later, Garden Cities has been involved in many housing developments, including; Pinelands Garden City, Meadowridge Garden City, Square Hill Garden City, Elfindale Garden City, Edgemead Garden City, Northpine Garden City, Dennemere Garden City, and Victoria Park Garden City, to name a few.
All profits made by the company are reinvested into the company and in previous years, funds were used to buy land for future developments. Recently, Garden Cities have used their profits to build school halls and to provide science laboratories in under-resourced schools in the Western Cape province.
