Doubled University numbers in 2 years and Over Kes. One million in fees support for freshers, Wundanyi Constituency.
In 2 years we have doubled our numbers of students Joining university….This year a total of 108 students made it compared to 53 in 2018 and 84 in 2019. Thanks to our #BoreshaMatokeoInititive and #UniversityDirectProgram.
In summary: we had 7 A-, 17 B+, 23 B, 33 B-, 28 C+ total 108. Split in locations as below:
Wundanyi -28, Mghage- 24, Werugha-16, Mbale- 13, Wumingu- 11, Mwanda- 12, Kishushe- 4
These initiatives encompasses financial support to help all our qualified students have a smooth start. That is why from our CDF kitty we managed to disburse Kes. 1,080,000 to go towards first semester fees, each student getting Kes.10,000. In addition we facilitate these students to access HELB, so that none of our students misses out on these students loans.
Yesterday at Werugha CDF Multi Purpose Hall, I joined parents and their children in celebrating these lifetime achievement. In addition as has been our norm now we held a university pre-exposure seminar to psychologically prepare our children and parents for university education. This year we brought together key resource persons to speak to my students and parents. They included Prof.
Kiptanui J.A Too, PHD, DVC Taita Taveta University (TTU), who was the Chief Guest, Mr. Mseri a Student counsellor at TTU and HELB officer Charity Ndingila, Undugu Mentorship CEO Elizabeth Mbinga and our Subcounty Director of Education Mr. Jilo. We also had our students, Jackline Mwazighe who graduated last year and attained a first class Honours degree and our best student in Taita Taveta 2018 Mr. Wangio currently pursuing degree in Medicine and Surgery sharing their university story with these freshers.
We are keeping the moments.. we shall not relent in matters development… we are enhancing our pool of future professions…. we have hit the transformation button… Wundanyi Constituency will not remain the same again.
