Over 3,000 students from Nyaribari Chache have every reason to smile after receiving bursary funds amounting to Ksh27, 820,000 courtesy of NG-CDF.
Addressing parents and students recently, area legislator Richard Tong’i asked all stakeholders to help children get proper education.
“We have decided to support education as one way of enabling our students to continue with their studies and reduce the burden on parents and guardians,” he said.
“We decided to give bursary to all students both in middle level colleges and universities to enable them pursue their dream,” added Tong’i.
A total of 3,202 received the support.
At the same time, he encouraged youths to join vocational training centres which will help them to acquire technical skills.
“Let our youths join vocational training institutions so that they can get the skills which can help them earn a living,” he said.
He said that the skills which youths get in plumbing, masonry, among other courses are on high demand in the society since everyone needs such services when building.
He also advised parents to take parental responsibility in teaching their children good morals.
“If our children are well trained and with good morals, cases we hear like suicide will be a thing of the past,” he said.
