KMTC edges closer to formalizing its partnership with HELB towards supporting needy students
The Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC) on Monday June 13, 2022 edged closer to formalizing its long-standing discussions with Higher Education Loans Board (HELB)—generating exciting opportunities for KMTC students.
KMTC CEO Dr. Kelly Oluoch and HELB CEO Charles Ringera reviewed a service contract that joins both Government entities in a partnership that will see College students obtain loans to finance their education.
“KMTC is making deliberate efforts to get financial support for its students to enable them to actualize their dreams. We are making steady steps to ensure we provide financial support in enhancing access to education,” said Dr. Oluoch during the meeting.
He noted that out of the over 50,000 students undertaking their training in the College, about 20,000 require bursaries and sponsorships to complete their studies successfully.
Mr. Ringera indicated that HELB was ready to work hand in hand with the College to ensure that the dreams of College students are not cut short due to lack of fees.
