Students Awarded ‘Go-Green’ Scholarships

Students Awarded ‘Go-Green’ Scholarships.

Five bright but needy students from each county will receive education scholarships as part of a 47-county initiative dubbed “go green.”

This week, ten schools in Nyanza received scholarships. There were five in Kisumu and five in Siaya counties.

Students from Ngere Boys High School, Rae Girls, Ach ego, Thurdibuoro, and Katolo Secondary were among those present.

Other secondary schools included Barding, Chianda, Lwak Sawagongo, and Boro. The program is a collaboration between schools, county environmental departments, and Pioneer Insurance.

“I thank my sponsors for offering this bursary to support my education“, said Cliff Otieno, a student at Barding Secondary. I’m also grateful for the mentorship and leadership development I’ve received:’

He is one of the students who will receive Sh5,000 as part of the Go-Green program.

The school administration selects the potential recipients. Students at each of the five schools plant 1,000 trees in two years to help the environment.

Aside from combating climate change, the 1,000 tree seedlings will beautify the school compound and provide shade for outdoor study and recreation when they mature.

“The scholarship beneficiaries will receive school fees, mentorship, and leadership training that begins with the responsibility of organizing their schoolmates,” said Timothy Mutua, Pioneer’s general manager for marketing. [Olivia Odhiambo] Formalized paraphrase.

Elswhere, youth in Baringo have completed a two-day training on online work in order to earn a living.

Ernest Kirui, Manager of the Baringo North NG-CDF Centre, and Athans Kosgey, a trainer, trained 20 youth and two county staff at the county offices in Kabarnet town, Baringo Central Sub-County, which began on Wednesday, May 18.

Youth on internship and industrial attachment at various county offices were trained in virtual assistance and encouraged to pursue online work in order to earn a living.

Kirui observed that the youth were eager to learn about different job categories as well as how to find genuine clients online.


He encouraged the youth to take advantage of Ajira Digital’s various training opportunities, which are typically held virtually, in order to learn more and improve their skills.

The government-launched program is one of the main empowerment programs aimed at imparting knowledge to the youth in order to encourage them to make good use of their time online to make money.
