Masomo Bora Programme Initiative to benefit more than 14,0000 Learners
Masomo Bora Programme Initiative to benefit more than 14,0000 Learners. A new educational initiative has been started in Kiharu Constituency in Murang’a County with the goal of raising the standard and cost of education for the thousands of pupils enrolled in its 60-day secondary schools.
The initiative, known as Kiharu Masomo Bora, was introduced on February 15 by Ndindi Nyoro, the local member of parliament, who stated that it was a part of his ambition to improve the educational system in the constituency.
In order to aid day secondary schools in preparing for national exams, the initiative has also allotted KES 10 million for review materials. The curriculum also includes a food program for all students, who will eat lunch in class and tea or porridge at 10:00.
Three days of rice and three days of githeri per week are now on the lunch menu. In order to keep students interested and make the most of their time, the program has also added lunches on Saturday.
A total of 14,000 students are covered by the program’s fee reduction for all day schools, which is KES 1,000 every term. Day students in secondary schools with both boarding and day students are also affected by this.
The Kiharu National Government Constituency Development Fund (NG-CDF), which has allotted KES 60 million for infrastructure development and to renovate the current infrastructure in the day schools this fiscal year, supports the program.
Any Kenyan who enrolls in one of the day schools is eligible, according to Nyoro, who also stated that the scheme will cover everyone who is placed in one of the day schools.
He claimed to have been working on the program for the previous four months and expressed encouragement about the results.
Nyoro further mentioned how Kiharu NG-CDF has collaborated with Food for Education, a non-governmental organization, to successfully run the program by contributing to the funding.
All of our 60-day secondary schools in the Kiharu constituency will have their infrastructure updated as part of this effort. Additionally, the funds will improve the lunch menus for the more than 14,000 kids enrolled in the day schools. From Monday through Saturday, there will be lunch served, and at the 10 a.m. break, there will be porridge, said Nyoro.
