Bursary Award

Good morning. I take this opportunity to greet you all, and to rejoice that we have been gifted with the ability to see today.

The best gift you can give a child is the ability, skill set and capacity to fight for their future. This is only made possible through the attainment of an EDUCATION to the highest standards possible. Education SHOULD NEVER EVER be compromised, and neither should it be a luxury. Education SHOULD NEVER be a preserve of the mighty few because majority cannot afford it. Malcom X rightly noted that education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.

Abanchari, from time to time, we have noticed our brilliant sons and daughters forgo their education because of financial incapacity. There is nothing that makes me sadder. The JN Maragia Foundation noticed this challenge in our community, and made a choice to do something about it.

To this end, it is with great humility and pleasure that the JN Maragia Foundation announces Bursaries totaling to 700,000/=. These monies shall be disbursed in phases:

  • 1st Phase of 100 Students=400,000/=
  • 2nd Phase of Continuing Students Form 2-4=150,000/=
  • 3rd Phase of Students in Tertiary Institutions=150,000/=

It is my sincere hope that the Foundation’s outstretched hand will ease the load on a parent/guardian. And it will give you, dear student, the strength to pursue excellence at all costs.

Dear student, as you start your high school journey today, be optimistic about the future. Be optimistic about overcoming all odds. Be optimistic in knowing that the darkest hour is before dawn. Be optimistic in the realization that your community loves you, and it shall rally behind you. As you pursue excellence, bask in the optimism that the JN Maragia Foundation is rooting for you to win regardless of the socio-economic circumstances surrounding you, that will NEVER define you. As an older brother, I wish you nothing but the very best as you start this journey.

The state of our society means that many more had applied for bursaries and scholarships. However, we have extended our help factoring in our financial capacity at this time. To those that did not get the result that they expected upon application, please do not feel disheartened. We encourage all persons, who can join hands with the JN Maragia Foundation in our quest to ensure quality education for all, to do so. This can be done through reaching out to us via our social media handles, or stopping by the Foundation’s office at Kerina. May the Almighty God bless you all.  

Yours Humbly
JN Maragia
Foundation’s President
