If your child got 350 or above in the KCPE and was in public school, you can apply for a scholarship through your Sacco if you are a member of a Sacco that has a bank account with Co-op Bank.
You can also apply through your county governor’s office (Office of Education).
Please contact the Co-op Foundation via 0711049475, 0711049584, or email: [email protected] for more information.
Visit your Sacco or talk to any of your Sacco officials; if you are in Nairobi, go to the cooperative house next to the bomb blast site; there is that co-operative bank on Agha Khan Walk; go to inquiries, and you will be guided on how to go about it. The kid must have 350 and above.
