He said that the funds were released for the period between 2016 and 2017.

Ibrahim-Zango said the programme was informed by the recent survey and statistics obtained on the number of out-of-school children in the northwest of the country by UNICEF and World Bank.

He said the survey indicated that a great percentage of the out-of-school children were the girl-children which attributed to child hawking, hence the decision of the donors to introduce the scholarship.

He noted that parents were expected to support the education of their children with school bags, sandals, food, stationery and other learning materials.

Ibrahim-Zango said his office had recently received an approval to include five additional primary schools in the area in the programme.

“’With this, we have 27 participating primary schools in this area,’’ he added.

He said the donors had also registered 42 primary schools that would enjoy the school improvement grant (SIG), adding that “’the grant varies from school to school.

“Some schools got N250,000 per annum, while some got N150, 000 to promote school environment and day care programme for little children.

The Acting Chairman of the Local Government Council, Alhaji Sale Tsagero, commended the donors and urged parents to make judicious use of the money.

He said the local government would strictly monitor how the money was being spent.

“’We will collaborate with teachers to ascertain how the cash donation was used on the children,’’ he said.

A cross-section of parents of the beneficiaries commended the donors and the Katsina State Government for their efforts in promoting education, especially the girl-child education.

Suwaiba Anas, the mother of one of the beneficiaries, Halima, promised to see to her daughter’s education up to the university level.

“’I want her to grow and compete in this modern world,’’ she said. (NAN)
