Application Form for KCB Foundation Scholarship 2023

While we all want our children to study, get better grades, go to universities, get jobs and help lift our societal status; not all tales of success come true.

While some students will score 400 plus marks and get admission to National schools, others won’t just make it past 100 marks. It is the way of life.

However, a child’s dreams of becoming an engineer, pilot, doctor, or technician should not be decided by the marks they get in KCPE; agreed?

In my opinion, 100 marks are just as equal to 400 marks. Provided the child who scores 100 marks is given direction off the normal syllabus.

And if you think alternative education is no education at all, why has the Kenyan government changed college diploma entry levels to accommodate trade test graduates?

Take your children to the nearest polytechnics, National Industrial Training Institutes or vocational training colleges and help them become somebody.

The best part about these courses is, you sometimes don’t even have to pay a coin for admission.
