The Funder of Kaaf University College, Mr Michael Aidoo, has awarded a scholarship package to 80 tertiary students in the Western North Region this September.
The beneficiaries would pursue courses such as Business Administration, Communications, Management, Human Resources, Engineering, Law, Nursing and Midwifery, and Business and Finance among several others.
Mr Aidoo, who is the Chancellor of KAAF University College and NDC Western North Regional Chairman, said the gesture formed part of his numerous plans to support brilliant but needy students in the Kaaf University College
Speaking with TV XYZ and Power FM news reporter Emmanuel Adjetey, at Kasoa the promises of Kaaf University College at a short ceremony, Mr Aidoo noted that his aim was to support the needy through education but more importantly tertiary education.
According to him, though the free Senior High School policy was a good initiative, free tertiary education gave real opportunities to the youth.
It is at the tertiary stage that provides students with the needed skills and qualifications needed for the job market, which will indeed make them relevant in nation-building, he stated
The Regional Chairman for the NDC of the Western North, had for the past ten (10) years offered opportunities to a lot of brilliant but needy people in the region through free tuition tertiary education in his university and other public institutions.
He admonished the students to study hard to encourage him to do more for them and others who might request his support.
Mr Aidoo was confident that with such support, Western North Region was on course to producing adequate human capital for its development.
The beneficiaries who could not hide their joy over the opportunity provided to them to pursue their educational aspirations were full of praise for Mr Aidoo for responding to their plight.
Some of the parents of students who get the opportunity to Kaaf University College also shared their joy for what the Funder of Kaaf University College has done for them. They, therefore, encourage the students who are Juniors in Kaaf University College to learn hard to achieve their dreams in life
