Governor Mandago Receives International Recognition for Doing this

The Uasin Gishu county governor Mr. Mandago has been featured in Finland's top newspaper known as Aamulehti for his vision for supporting the young people's education in the country.

The governor had spearheaded successful allocation of scholarships and job opportunities to youths from kenya. The deal between his county government and Finland will see 51 students in September to pursue Nursing at Tampere University of Applied Sciences.

The governor is targeting more than 300 students to benefit from the deal with Finland before his term ends in 2022. Tampere City in Finland will pave way for kenyan students to do part-time jobs as they learn, to enable them to cater for their fees and other basic needs.

The county's 25 best students were picked to go to Finland under scholarship. A suitability test was conducted by Finnish University representatives at the KMTC, these students however are supposed to cater for their own expenses while in Finland.

“You are the pioneers of this partnership and I want you to go to Finland and do our county and your parents proud. This will pave way for other students who will come after you. Please be our good ambassador," Mr Mandago stated.
