Career Fairs & College Scholarships


Attending college exceeds the financial capacity for many families, especially those in small scale mining. The scholarship program will provide opportunities for children of mining communities to attend a domestic college for 2 to 3 years, depending on the student’s field of study. This initiative is available to past graduates of Kitarini Primary School and Mwatate Children’s Home students.
