More than 650 needy and disabled students have the opportunity to pursue higher education through Kenya Pipeline Company (KPC) Foundation’s education scholarship programme – INUKA – which will sponsor students in secondary school as well as tertiary institutions.

The initiative covers all the 47 counties in Kenya, offering educational support to disabled students upon completion of their primary and secondary school education. Launched in 2017, INUKA facilitates the sponsorship of 94 students annually, amounting to a financial commitment exceeding Ksh60 million. This funding covers school fees, basic needs, mentoring, psychosocial support, and leadership development.

Addressing concerns about the quality of graduates entering the workforce, Mr Joe Sang, Managing Director of Kenya Pipeline Company emphasized the organization’s responsibility to transform students’ lives. Speaking at the inaugural Tunza mentorship and career guidance program for learners with disabilities at Reverend Muhoro School for the Deaf, he stressed the importance of mentoring students and imparting necessary skills before their transition into the workforce.

Mr Sang highlighted the injustice of neglecting this responsibility, considering the significant number of graduates entering the Kenyan job market annually. The commitment of KPC Foundation lies in enhancing education and fostering community growth.

Mr Sang said investing in knowledge yields the best interest, announcing that this year, the INUKA scholarship programme would sponsor students with disabilities at tertiary institutions and universities. The aim is to provide ongoing mentoring and empowerment until these learners are prepared for the workforce.

The performance of KPC Foundation scholars has been commendable, with 15 students joining universities out of 87 candidates in 2020, 16 out of 97 in 2021, and 4 out of 94 in 2022. This year, over 20 students are set to benefit from the scholarship, joining universities out of 103 candidates.
