Irungu Nyakera Foundation will spend Ksh10 million to pay school fees for 110 Form 1 students through a scholarship programme in Murang’a County.

The Foundation, initiated by KEMSA Chairman Irungu Nyakera, is a timely rescue to the learners who had been left home as their peers joined secondary schools.

Speaking at Kimorori Primary School, Nyakera said that he will continue supporting children from poor backgrounds to pursue their dreams.

Nyakera said that the scholarship programme is supported by friends and will pay school fees for day scholars for their entire stay in secondary school.

“Last year we had 354 beneficiaries who did well in their KCSE examinations,” he said.

Maragua MP Mary Wamaua lauded the foundation, saying that it has helped learners who had been left behind to continue their education.

She lamented that the amount disbursed by the NG CDF bursary kitty was not enough to cater for the needs of all the deserving children.

“In Maragua, I disbursed Ksh46 million which was not enough as it catered for only 60 percent of the learners. I’m happy that the Irungu Nyakera  Foundation stepped in to help,” she said.
