The beneficiaries of Budalangi NG-CDF education bursaries have been urged to take advantage of the opportunity and put more effort in their studies so as to realize their potential.

Speaking to Education News at the Bunyala Sub-county NG-CDF premises on Thursday June 13, Budalangi NG-CDF committee chairman Alfred Wesonga Siduwa said the CDF committee under the patronage of Budalangi MP Raphael Wanjala has given education first priority.

He said though Budalangi NG-CDF committee is committed to supporting the education of needy students in the constituency, parents should not relax but instead do everything within their means to ensure they contribute towards the education of their children.

“The bursary allocation for needy students is just a boost, I am taking this opportunity to ask parents not to leave the burden on the shoulder of the CDF committee,” he said.
