Parents have been advised not to forget their mandate of teaching their children moral values in the society.
Addressing parents and students on Friday at Keroka Equity Bank branch during the flagging of Wings to fly program which benefited 13 students from North and South Masaba, the Branch Manager Robert Onchwangi called parents not to forget their mandate even when the bank takes the responsibility of sponsoring them.
Robert added that it’s the mandate of parents and other stakeholders to partner with the bank so that they can support the education sector.
He also called upon parents to guide their children well as they choose careers.
“The bank has played its part in sponsoring the students for their secondary level education but my appeal is to the parents and stakeholders to partner with the bank so that we can support education and make these students shine,” said Branch manager Robert.
Ichuni ward members of county assembly Francis Aburi who were present echoed the manager sentiments by calling upon the students not to waste the opportunity they have been given by the bank.
“We can only achieve our goals in education sector when we work in full partnership in enhancing better result," said Aburi.
At the same time, he challenged the selection panel to avoid bias during the selection to give equal opportunity to venerable students in the community.
Among those who benefited from the program are 7 girls and 6 boys they will later travel to Nairobi where they will attend the main flagging ceremony on Monday which will be officiated by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
