MP announces funding of students doing short courses in Kiambu

Kiambu MP Machua Waithaka (left) has said he will pay fees for all TVET students from his constituency doing short courses.

It is a huge boost for Kiambu students in Technical and Vocational Education and Training Institutions (TVETs) doing short courses after Machua Waithaka, MP, announced a full sponsorship programme for them.

The MP, speaking today during the commissioning of the newly renovated Kangoya Primary School in Ndumberi, said the move is aimed at giving youth opportunity to gain valuable skills that will help them secure employment and improve their lives.

“My leadership is determined to improve the lives of young people by sponsoring them to study technical short courses,” the MP said.

The initiative, which is funded by the National Government Constituencies Development Fund (NGCDF), will cover students doing a variety of courses, ranging from Plumbing, Masonry, Tiling, Cosmetology, Catering, and Electrical Engineering.

He said that students who would wish to apply for bursaries only need to provide a copy of their national ID, their parents’ ID, birth certificate, two passport photos and an academic certificate and they will be through with the applications.

Waithaka said that registration is currently on-going at chiefs’ offices in Ting’ang’a, Riabai, Ndumberi and Kiambu Township, urging that students should seize that opportunity before time elapses.
