Over 2000 Students In Kajiado North Benefited From NG-CDF Bursaries.
Over 2000 students in the Kajiado North constituency have received tertiary education bursaries from the national government constituency development fund (NG-CDF).
In the ongoing tertiary bursaries disbursement program, a total of Sh2 million has been disbursed to learning institutions.
Kajiado North Member of Parliament Joseph Manje has emphasized the importance of education in community development.
He claims that the bursaries program has helped students complete their education by reducing the number of children who drop out due to a lack of school fees.
“Education is the greatest gift any parent can give to a child to prepare them for life as an adult. We have prioritized education in the Kajiado North constituency.
“Education helps to improve the economic status of an individual and contributes to the development of the community.
“In the past there were young girls employed as domestic workers but now they are in school,” said Manje.

According to Peter Njoroge, the bursaries program coordinator, students from vulnerable families were identified through a vetting committee in each sublocation.
“We have identified the most vulnerable cases with help from a vetting committee in each sub-location consisting of a woman representative, chief, elders and a youth representative who know the people from respective areas,” Njoroge added.
Each fiscal year, the Kajiado North NGCDF tertiary bursaries program awards approximately Sh13 million to students from low-income families.
