Netizens share varied thoughts on Tagab Mathew's situation
KsTU is ready to offer him admission.
How do I get in touch with him?
Why? Can’t he access Student Loan Trust Fund https://sltf.gov.gh? All he needs is his Ghana card.
I'm even shocked, maybe he wants us to see his results.
Parents have saved enough to support their kids further their education because of FSHS. A child whose parents couldn't cater to their wards in SHS can do so at the tertiary level, that's what gov't is saying.
St. James diie, top oo, my nephew got 6As, B3 in English, and B2 in social studies. The money now be the problem. Everywhere make sheee.
Instead of going for an apprenticeship, he should rather work whilst he explores scholarship opportunities. Master Card is available for students who have stayed home a year after she. GNPC IS ALSO THERE. Apprenticeship is not the way forward if he wants to further his education.
Help will surely come if not now very soon. For now, those with big engineering firms around can take him as a trainee on probation, with some monthly allowance, and also mentor him on savings. After a year he can apply and things will be easier cus he has practical experience.
