Needy and bright students drawn across Webuye will be kept in schools courtesy of the Dickson Juma Foundation.

Addressing the students and parents who are under the foundation’s scholarship, philanthropist Dickson Juma revealed that already 673 learners are on board.

“The 673 students are from poor backgrounds and the foundation objective is giving back to the society through education, “the foundation founder Mr. Juma told the parents and students during this year’s Annual General Meeting.

The foundation pays full school fees and provides basic needs for the students.

Mr. Juma observed that most of the students who have a desire to go through education will be able to do that through the foundation.

He urged the students to work extra hard in order to achieve their dreams.

At the same time, he took the opportunity to urge the community to value education as the only tool to a better society.

Mr. Juma further noted that he was inspired by the plight of bright but poor students who were thirsty for education but were unable to raise school fees, prompting him to initiate a foundation to empower the community through education.
