Over 650 orphans and poor students from rural Matete district in Kakamega County have a reason to smile after an independent organization Nuclear students Trust issued 3 million Kenya shillings to carter for their school fees.
The students from various schools in the district will in the next term not worry over lack of school fees.The initiative by the Nuclear Student Trust(NST)and other financial plyers is expected to provide the orphans with a solution towards the challenges they experience during their learning process where many end up missing schools due to lack of school fees.
More than 1800 free blankets will be distributed to orphans to marginal areas of the districts where access to basic education and transition rates from Primary to Secondary school remain low. According to the project coordinator Mr.John Kariuki,said the fund donated is expected to restore hope among learning orphans as they pursue their academic dreams.”Poor access to funds has greatly inconvenienced them and impacted negatively in their performance at school” said Mr Karuiki.
Alphino Angoya,a concern resident hailed the sponsors for the timely intervention saying that most of the less fortunate students have been forced to drop out of the school due to lack of school fees.
