Just few days after the country was thrown into big shock following the reported story of young Bungoma girl who scored 402 marks who was at the verge of repeating class eight as his parent could not afford the fees required for the admission at Moi Girls High Eldoret, another story carried out by Tuko.co.ke is yet another story of fee problem of a young girl who was at the brink of not going to school tomorrow because of 17000 shillings.
In a post shared by Tuko news, Philanthropist lawyer,Wahome Thuku came to the girls aid by rallying people to contribute 50,000 shillings. The girl who was called at St.Georges High School can now smile as the collected money will be used to pay for her admission fee while the excess used to buy her personal items. She will be transported by Uber to her school as the condition of her mother does not allow her to travel by public means.
This question of learners almost missing their dream schools due to fee problems have become rampant in Kenya and the question one may ask is what the County government and CDF is doing to address this issue intems of provision of bursaries to needy and deserving students.
