Apart from ensuring that the students who are eligible of furthering their educations are given the required financial support as per the act in the constitution of the country Kenya, the higher education loan board HELB is responsible in availing the correct and detailed data analysis for every financial year to the government.
This allows the government to have a clear overview and a well structured plan toward the organizing of educational funds for the higher learning institutions during anual budgeting.
The Higher Educations Loans Board (HELB) has therefore released a report detailing how billions were shared among university students in the Financial Year 2020/2021.
In the report which was made public on Friday, the 22 of October, it shows clearly that the government channeled Ksh14.4 billion to various students drawn from different parts of the country where 354,069 students in public universities were the beneficiaries of the loans.
Charles Ringera who is the HELB Chief Executive Officer, later noted that they have been working with different stakeholders from different counties to ensure all the Kenyan needy students stand a chance to benefit from the HELB money
