The program targets students who achieved a score of 320 marks or more in the 2023 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education, ensuring their educational continuity by covering associated fees.
The scholarship declaration occurred at the Awali estate grounds, where 50 deserving students, in the company of their parents and guardians, received letters affirming their inclusion in the scholarship initiative sponsored by Centum Real Estate Company.
Among the recipients is 16-year-old Michelle Neema, a former student at Mkwajuni Primary School, who scored an impressive 342 marks.
