In an effort towards promoting education, the Bandawa Education Endowment Foundation (BEEFOUNDATION) has granted scholarships to no fewer than twenty-one enrolled members of the National Association of Bandawa Students at Taraba State University in Jalingo.
Aligned with the Association’s vision to augment governmental initiatives in advancing education, the scholarship, according to the foundation, is geared towards alleviating the challenges faced by students of Bandawa descent pursuing their education at State University.
During the scholarship presentation, Chairman Yakubu Idris expressed the foundation’s commitment to expanding its reach to encompass more students across various institutions in the country.
He urged the recipients to, in the future, emulate the philanthropic endeavours of the BOT members by supporting upcoming generations.
Yakubu Idris extended gratitude to the foundation’s members for their selfless service to the Bandawa Community, offering prayers for abundant rewards from God.
The ecstatic students, unable to contain their joy during the ceremony, expressed their heartfelt appreciation to the foundation for the invaluable support and pledged to reciprocate the gesture.
Noteworthy initiatives undertaken by BEEFOUNDATION this year include the provision of books and educational resources to aid students at Bandawa Primary and Secondary Schools.
Additionally, the foundation, as noticed by our state correspondent, covered the school fees of a final-year student at Taraba State University.
