County Executive Committee Member for Education, Dr. Janet Kosgei, on Wednesday, flagged off another batch of students travelling to Finland for further studies.

The students are part of the program in which the county has been helping the youth travel abroad.

Speaking during the event held at the county headquarters, Dr. Kosgei said the county is currently working on streamlining the program so as to address issues that had threatened to disrupt it.

Following issues over the current cohort of students in Finland, Governor Jonathan Bii set up a task force headed by Deputy Governor Eng. John Barorot.

We thank the Governor for establishing the task force to salvage the program after issues that almost led to it falling apart,” the CECM said.

She further noted that more students are on their way to Finland.

The 31 students have been allowed to travel to Finland to study physiotherapy after paying 70 per cent of their tuition fees. They had already secured study visas.

The CECM further noted that the program has been successful so far, and expressed optimism that parents will soon start enjoying the fruits.

In the next 5 years there will be a transformation in the county – dependence ratio will go down, and harambees will be few,” said Dr Kosgei.

Chief Officer for Education, Ruth Samoei, on her part advised the students to work hard and maintain their identity even when abroad.

She also advised them against making decisions as a group.

Go and realize your own goals and targets – you’re never we, it’s but your life,” the Chief Officer told the students.
