Over 155 students receive scholarship

Keyera’s Gift, a non-governmental organization has awarded scholarships to over 155 students in five counties at an estimated cost of 110,000 United States Dollars.

Country Representative Reverend Francis Kollie, who appeared very ill, said the scholarship also includes book bags, copybooks, uniforms, shoes and health insurance.

Reverend Kollie made the disclosure when Keyera’s Gift distributed books, book bags, pens and pencils to over 155 students in Paynesville, outside Monrovia during the weekend.

He urged students, who are not performing well in their studies, to double up because they risk being dropped from the scholarship.

Reverend Kollie thanked Madam Karen Ecklund and Kreig Ecklund of Keyara’s Gift International for their support for children in Liberia.

He said scholarships to students are intended to buttress the Pro-poor Agenda of the Liberian government.

Students from five counties, including Montserrado, Margibi, Bong, Nimba and Grand Bassa are benefiting from the scholarship program.

Responding on behalf of parents, Mrs. Maleay Karmoh thanked Keyera’s Gift for providing scholars to their children, as the assistance will go a long way in impacting lives of the children.
