69 students benefit from Equity Bank scholarship

Some 69 students who sat for their 2021 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education in Makueni county have benefited from Equity bank MasterCard scholarship.

The 69 who will join Form One this week, were competitively selected among 750 students after a rigorous and transparent process in all the six sub counties.

“The 69 beneficiaries, 37 girls and 32 boys will benefit for the entire four years with the scholarship catering for school fees, learning material and pocket money,” said Equity Bank Wote Branch Manager Joseph Mule at Wote Green Park recreational centre during the awarding of the Scholarship yesterday.

Mule disclosed that they gave priority to students who had lost their parents, those living with disability and those from poor backgrounds.

“We are keen and committed to provide mentorship programmes for students in schools during holidays,” added Mule.

Speaking at the same function, Makueni county commissioner Gilbert Kitiyo urged the beneficiaries to maintain a high standard of discipline all the time in order to excel in exams and later be successful in life.

However, Kitiyo warned that the government will not support and tolerate any case of indiscipline in schools.

“Desist from peer pressure indiscipline as the government will not support any indisciplined student at all,” added Kitiyo.

Kitiyo noted that the government was committed in supporting education programmes that he noted guaranteed a better future for all children.
