SET Project to sponsor tuition for students in need

Radio & TV Tonga, Nuku’alofa, 30/01/2020

The Skills and Employment Training Project run by the government (SET) is hoping to be the sole sponsor of school fees for students from less fortunate families in Tonga.

This was one of the issues highlighted yesterday in a televised program of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in partnership with the Ministry of Education.

The Deputy CEO of the Ministry – Lu’isa Manuofetoa says, they are hoping families could understand the benefits their college students could get from the program for the next 4 years.

Manuofetoa adds, they understand that some students’ tuition will be paid for by Tongan kava club scholarship programs but the hope is that they could give the government this opportunity – as it is being funded by the World Bank.
