The students are among 80 sponsored by KCB nationwide since the initiative began over a year ago, as part of the bank’s corporate social responsibility programme. The bank mainly caters for the school fees of the students.
Elisa Angap Bol looks grateful at the Manager of Kenya Commercial Bank and the Principal of Kuajok National Secondary School as they talk. She waits on behalf of her fellow student scholarship recipients to receive a cheque of 10,000 South Sudanese Pounds.
Elisa is one female student chosen from over 200 in Kuajok National Secondary School to benefit from KCB 2013/2014 academic year sponsorship initiative in Warrap State.
She qualified due to her good performances, discipline and her back ground — Elisa is an orphan! As she receives the cheque, Elisa promises to support her fellow students and other orphans.
