CCK donates KES 3M to a Bungoma school

17 February 2014, 13:44 Arap Yego

Bungoma - Parents and pupils of a primary school in Sirisia Constituency, Bungoma County that lacks basic facilities can now sigh with relief after the Communication Commission of Kenya (CCK) made a donation of over KES 3 million to the institution of learning over the weekend.

The commission donated KES 3, 064,000 to Masaba D.E.B Primary on Saturday, with the funds coming from a kitty set aside for the Commission's Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme.

The money from the commission will be used to construct four classrooms in the school which has posted impressive results in the national examinations, despite having inadequate classrooms.

Speaking to journalists after the function, CCK Director General Francis Wangusi said each year his commission identifies a needy school which they accord the philanthropic gesture.

“It’s a yearly activity by CCK as a way of giving back to the community and endearing ourselves to different communities. Last year, we helped construct classrooms at a school in Taita Taveta County and this year after receiving proposals, we chose Maraba in Bungoma County,” he said.

Wangusi said apart from its core mandate of regulation, CCK has also gone out of its way and funded a number of school based E-learning centres in different parts of the country.

“We have at least two centres in each of the eight former provinces in the country. The centres  that promote computer literacy serve schools and members of the nearby community,” said Wangusi.

Ben Gituku, CCK Chairman, Patrick Quarcoo, Radio Africa CEO were present at the function, among a host of other leaders.
