NYANZA - The National coordinator of the Association of Student Genocide Survivors (AERG), Jean Paul Kabera, has challenged student survivors in secondary schools in the country to strive for academic excellence so as to ensure a brighter future.
Speaking during celebrations to mark 12 years of AERG, at Christ-Roi Secondary School last weekend, Kabera counseled students to be exemplary and to always aim higher.
“Genocide survivor children in secondary schools have to study hard and get government scholarships, they should not wait for AERG scholarships alone,” said Kabera.
Alexis Harerimana, the school’s headmaster, praised AERG members at the school for being exemplary. “They have succeeded in class and overall discipline,” he said.
It was revealed that all AERG finalist students at the school last year, passed national examinations, 90 percent of them got scholarships to join universities and other higher institutions of learning.
