Assets bursary disbusment

Hello every one! Just to update you on how far ASSETS has gone this year. The ASSETS team i.e. Festus and Bimbo have been busy dispatching bursary cheques in secondary schools for the continuing students. Already, forty one (41) beneficiary students have been awarded bursaries to keep them in school. This has really helped the students, since most of them had already been sent home for fees, but the ASSETS team has struggled to ensure that they are back in school by sending the bursary cheques to the various secondary schools, paying a total of four hundred fourteen thousand and three hundred shillings (Kshs. 414,300) for the 41 students. This is just the first phase of the bursary payment which has been done for the continuing students only. The second phase will include those students joining form one this year. An assessment of the new beneficiaries who are yet to join this year will be conducted and then bursaries paid for these new ASSETS members. This will take place in the next two weeks after which the bursary payment task for term one of the year will be finished.
