Three needy students from Budalangi constituency in Busia County have every reason to smile after a well-wisher volunteered to pay for their school fees.
Milton Mukanda who scored 329 marks at Bubango primary school, Livelone Tabu with 300 marks at Runyu primary school, and Charles Okumu Opondo who bagged 300 marks at Mahanga primary school in the 2022 KCPE exam had failed to join secondary school for lack of the requisite fees.
James Mabere, a prominent businessman offered to pay for their school fees to ensure they get the much-needed education.
On Wednesday Mabere helped the three to get admissions at John Osogo secondary school after paying a total Sh30, 000 for the entire year.
The well-wisher also purchased assorted items for the boys including learning materials, two pairs of school uniforms each, and a pair of shoes for each of the students as well.
The three appreciated the well-wisher for coming to their assistance and promised to work hard in school in order to achieve their dreams in life.
“I am very pleased because I am finally joining Secondary School today.
I want to wholeheartedly thank Mr. Mabere for the kind gesture considering that my parents could not raise the required school fees,” said Mukanda.
Mabere who has sponsored the education of many students in Bunyala Sub County promised to continue doing so for the many needy students in the constituency.
“I want to urge the students to put more effort in their studies so that at the end of the day, they will be able to give back to society,” Mabere said
