Twenty - one MMUST students benefitted from ACCES sponsorship. Handing over the Ksh 157,500 cheque to the Vice Chancellor Prof. Fred Otieno in his office, ACCES Programme Manager, Mr. Anthony Mutevane said that his organisation will sponsor more students from MMUST in the next year.
Prof. Otieno thanked ACCES for actualizing the MoU and stressed the need to step up community interactions and adopt a multi - sectoral approach in resolving problems within the community. He said much work needs to be done on Cancer awareness, anti - jigger campaign and tackling of life style diseases.
The VC noted that the aid given to students should go beyond fees and a programme souls be put in place to inculcate the desire of the ACCES to give back to society.
Mr. Mutevane said that his organisation will partner with MMUST in joint proposal writing so that more students benefit from the scholarship programme.
ACCES is a Canadian based non - profit organisation with offices across the world that caters for the less fortunate in society through education.
