Laikipia County has initiated the distribution of bursary funds worth Ksh75 million to support financially challenged students across its 15 wards.

This initiative aims to empower students from underprivileged backgrounds to pursue education and unlock their potential.

In a significant step towards achieving educational equity, distribution of cheques worth Ksh4,386,840 million was carried out in Githiga ward.

The funds will directly benefit students in need, ensuring they access quality education.

Laikipia Governor Joshua Irungu lauded the bursary committee for their meticulous vetting process, which ensured deserving students were prioritized.

He reiterated his government’s unwavering commitment to education, promising unparalleled support to achieve 100 percent transition rate from primary to secondary schools.

He added that for students who may not secure a spot in universities, the government will provide full scholarships to Vocational Training Centers (VTCs) in the county.

“This year’s disbursement, amounting to Ksh75 million surpasses the previous year’s allocation of Ksh50 million, demonstrating the county’s ongoing dedication to providing accessible education for all,” he said.

Irungu also unveiled a newly completed state-of-the-art Early Childhood Development and Education (ECDE) classroom at G.G Primary School in Kinamba, built and fully equipped by the county.

“The modern ECDE classroom is poised to enhance the learning experience for young students, enriching their educational journey,” he said.
