Bungoma County MP Catherine Wambilianga has launched the NGAAF bursary to assist vulnerable children across the 45 Wards.

Bungoma  County   Woman   Representative  Catherine  Wambilianga  has  officially  launched  the  National  Government  Affirmative  Action  Fund  (NGAAF)  Bursary  Fund  worth  Ksh7.2  million that will  be  distributed  across  the  45  Wards  to  assist  vulnerable  children  to  access  quality  education.

According  to  the  county  MP,  though the  funds  are  not  enough  to cater  for  all  students,  she  will  try  her  best  to   assist  the  needy  cases.

During the event at  St  Kizito  Mayanja  Mixed  Secondary  School  in  South  Bukusu  Ward, she pledged to continue advocating  for  the  improvement  of  the education  sector.

She  also  noted  that  through  NGAAF, she  will  continue  providing  sanitary  towels  to  girls,  especially  in  the  rural  day  secondary  schools.

Wambilianga  turned  her  attention  to  parents,  emphasizing  the  critical  need for  their  involvement  in  nurturing   and  guiding  their  children  so that  pressing  issues such as  teenage  pregnancies are reduced or eliminated altogether.

In  his  remarks,  the  school  principal  Kong’ani  Mabonga, who  doubles  up  as  the  KESSHA  chairman   in  Bumula  Sub-county,  urged  leaders  in  the  region  to  assist  the  school  to  procure  more  computers.
