127 needy students in Moiben Constituency from poor background have benefited from the sh 1.3 million presidential bursary fund.
Moiben Member of parliament Silas Tiren said the fund is meant to help children from orphaned and humble background continue with their education.
“Uasin Gishu County as a whole received Sh5.4 Million where each of the 6 constituencies received Sh1.3 million and we have sponsored 127 needy students,” said the Moiben member of parliament after disbursing the cheques at TAC centre on Friday.
He said that his administration is poised to ensure that every needy student in the constituency access education since it’s his right as enshrined in the constitution.
“Presidential bursary is different from constituency one since its different since once given to a needy student he or she will continue receiving the funds until he/she completes school,” Tiren added.
He called on the bursary committee to ensure that only needy students access bursary funds.
“There are many needy children and should be assessed and vetted well to ensure they are the ones who benefit from the same and get quality education,” said the Jubilee MP.
He, however, urged parents and guardians to ensure they fill the bursary forms well by following the right procedure to avoid them being rejected.
