Schools Get Emergency Food for KCPE, KPSEA Candidates.

Kiio Wambua Foundation, a nonprofit organization established in Kitui, has sent emergency meals to 81 primary schools.

Fatuma Kasyoka, the organization’s chief executive officer, stated after giving food to elementary schools in Kivou ward, Mwingi Central, that the Organization sought to assist government efforts to ensure that no student sits for an exam while hungry.

Local political leaders urged that the food supplied this week by Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki be delivered to schools.

“Following the drought that badly hit most parts of Kitui and negatively affected school going children, we saw it wise to distribute food to the schools so that pupils do not sit for the exams on empty stomachs,” she said.

Fatuma noted that the organization’s patron, Senator Enock Kiio of Kitui, is urging well-wishers to give a helping hand to those in need, particularly during this test period.

Local political officials hailed the group for its aid and invited additional donors to contribute.

Mr. Dominic Njagi, the principal of Mwingi Primary School, stated that his institution will have approximately 200 grade 6 and 8 students sitting for the national exams scheduled for the following week.

Due to the severe economic conditions brought on by the drought, Njagi stated that the teachers had first pleaded with parents for a contribution of Sh100 per student in order to purchase food for the students.

The majority of the time, he claimed, teachers were compelled to go deep into their pockets to purchase food for students severely affected by drought.“The food received will help learners a lot during the exams,” he said.
