It has been a while since we last updated a blog, but that does not mean that we had nothing to say….absolutely not! On the contrary, we at ASSETS have been busy, running up and down ensuring that ASSETS lives up to its reputation as a sustainable development program. The past few weeks have seen a buzz of activities of dispatching of cheques to schools.
We give thanks to God for He has been merciful and faithful. We have been praying for funds for bursaries and God did it again and we managed to allocate and disbursed bursaries for 52 ASSETS students. God surely is working in our lives.
With our relatively old but rather responsive Yamaha DT motorcycle, the ASSETS coordinator Festus with the help of our volunteer from Holland, have been busy dispatching bursary cheques in secondary schools for the continuing students. Already, the fifty two (52) beneficiary students have been awarded bursaries to keep them in school, paying a total of five hundred thousand shillings (Kshs. 500,000) for all of them.
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 who joined form one this year. An assessment which has taken us this long to conduct due to lack of funds, of the new beneficiaries who have joined this year will be conducted and then bursaries paid for these new ASSETS members.
