The foundation provides scholarship opportunities for students to obtain bachelor and master degree and also provides skill training, including tailoring, catering, interior decoration among other for girls in the county.
Speaking at his launching ceremony over the weekend, lauded the foundation for its continuous support to citizens in the county and called on students in the county to take advantage of the opportunities.
“We want to thank the CEO of the foundation for this opportunity. We have always encouraged our fellow students to prepare themselves as opportunities like these are for prepared students. We want you to go there and represent us; not only us but this country. For those of you who will be lucky to go, we want you to return and contribute to the growth and development of our nation.”
