Kuman sponsors UPNG students

Gumine MP Nick Kuman has committed K7070 from his District Support Grant for part payment of tuition fees for eight students from his electorate.

The eight students last year wrote to Mr Kuman’s office for assistance and further took up the matter to the Gumine Joint District Planning and Priorities Committee for their consideration.

Due to delays in the release of the Gumine DSG, the matter was temporarily put on hold until this year, when the JDPBPC approved their request that they be assisted in line with the Gumine Five – Year District Plan.

Gumine’s difficult terrain makes it difficult for large – scale agricultural production and infrastructure development, hence, parents find it hard to raise money for their children’s school fees.

“This will enable them (students) to get through their studies, and reduce the burden placed on their parents,”Mr Kuman said.

“My only word to the students is that you must try your best so that you will achieve good academic results for the benefit of your parents, the people of Gumine, and the nation as a whole.”

Mr Kuman said he would commit K50, 000 to support students from his electorate next year, but added that this would be no free handout and the beneficiaries would have to first meet certain criteria.

Gumine students’ representative, Peter Uri, gave a word of thanks to Mr Kuman and said his support would go a long way towards human resource development in Gumine.
