SUMMARY

The KCPE results were released In November and most students have already received letters to join their respective schools in January

With the cost of quality education out of reach for most Kenyans, each year, thousands of eager students fall off the education ladder for lack of fees

The National Government Kamukunji Constituency Development Fund (NGKCDF) will start the process of identifying bursary beneficiaries from December 18, 2018.

According to a notice seen by Ureport, the five areas listed include Shauri Moyo, California, Airbase, Eastleigh North and Eastleigh South wards.

The exercise will be carried out at different times (as per the notice) and all residents have been urged to keep time.


Those who wish to be considered for the bursary will be required to produce:

· National ID card of parents/self

· Proof of being a Kamukunji resident

· Fee structure

· School admission letter

· KCPE results for those joining form 1 in 2019

· Recent college transcripts

The KCPE results were released In November and most students have already received letters to join their respective schools in January.

With the cost of quality education out of reach for most Kenyans, each year, thousands of eager students fall off the education ladder for lack of fees.

There have been decent efforts such as education bursaries supported by the Constituency Development Fund, county governments and the Affirmative Action Fund to ensure that no child misses an opportunity at an education.

But the importance of the bursaries has been questioned due to claims of corruption especially since deserving cases are often left out, or the amount issued is too little to adequately cover the fee required.
