Rattansi Education Trust Sponsorship

Needy students from private and public universities received a big boost towards their education after Rattansi Education Trust donated 26 Million towards their education for the current academic year.

The cheques were issued today, January 18, 2018 at the University of Nairobi Council Chambers.

Speaking during the check donation exercise, where over 20 universities (both private and public) were represented, Dr. Vijoo Rattansi, Chairperson of the Rattansi Education Trust, observed that students who benefit from the scholarship should put more effort in their academic endevours. Dr. Rattansi was accompanied by her son and her daughter in law, who stressed the importance of forming ex-Rattansi beneficiaries’ alumni association. Alumni members would have the opportunity to mentor and interact with the students. Last year, the Trust donated scholarships worth 60 million during its 60th anniversary celebrations.

University of Nairobi Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Peter Mbithi, took the opportunity to thank Dr. Rattansi who is also the Chancellor of the University. Prof. Mbithi noted that the scholarship has helped many bright and needy students to pursue their university education at various universities across the country. The beneficiaries are now serving the society in various sectors within the country and abroad. “We are lucky to have you as our Chancellor and for supporting the needy and bright students, “said Prof. Mbithi.

In his concluding remarks, Prof. Mbithi welcomed the idea of beneficiaries forming an association where they can share common value systems and express gratitude for the support they received.

Also present during the event were Prof. Isaac Mbeche, Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Student Affairs and Prof. Henry Mutoro, Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Academic Affairs.
