INTRODUCTION Maralal Campus is a branch of Laikipia University College of Egerton University which was launched on 25th March 2011 at Nomotio Farm, a 600 ha of land donated to the Campus by Samburu County Council. The land has a good number of structures formerly used by Ministry of livestock as an extension livestock production farm. STUDENTS’ ADMISSION STATUS AND ACADEMIC PROGRAMMES When the launching of the Campus took place, indeed it was a dream that was launched. In the minds of many, there lies doubt. Where will students come from and where will the lecturers come from? This doubt was replicated when academic programs begun in September 2011 where only 76 students were admitted. By January 2012, the Campus received 178 new students mainly from Samburu Central, by May 2012, the Campus received 238 new students bringing a total to 428 excluding those who graduated with Certificates on 10th May 2012. ACADEMIC PROGRAMMES OFFERED AT MARALAL CAMPUS ARE AS FOLLOWS : - 1. MBA. (16 Students) 2. MEd. (22 Students) 3. BCom. (36 Students) 4. BEd Arts (38 Students) 5. BSc. ComDev. (25 Students) 6. Dip. Ed (62 Students) 7. Dip. Business Mgt. (82 Students) 8. ICT (21 Students) 9. Cert. ComDev (56 Students) 10. Cert. Business Mgt. (42 students) 11. Bridging in Maths. (28 Students) MARALAL CAMPUS FUNDRAISING JUSTIFICATION Due to huge demand, Maralal Campus may not have the capacity to admit new students in September-2012. Since it is a public institution of higher learning, it is the responsibility of Laikipia University College to develop the infrastructure of the Campus. Options therefore are very limited: To turn down applicants as from now henceforth until when we receive help from the government, or, we raise funds to build hostels and give a lifetime chance to somebody in need. These are children of the “lesser god’’ whose potentials are immense but unequal sharing of the National Cake has marginalized them from accessing higher education. APPEAL The intended fundraising is targeting to raise 50 Million. We dare to dream big, we aim at the sun and probably reach to the moon. This can be realized in phases, may be within a time frame of 3 years. We envisage a modern Complex up the hill as the old fox refer Makerere University “A University in the mountain”. Our first priority is female hostel to accommodate students especially from Samburu East and Samburu North. The cost will be subsidized to make it affordable and any coin collected will go towards building extra hostels. We are relying on the good will and generosity of each one of you in order to collect funds from institutions (Laikipia University College being one of them), Samburu County Council, Town Council of Maralal, CSO’s, FBO’s, Samburu East and Samburu West Constituency Funds, Professionals, diasporans, foreigners and individuals. Your contribution will be highly appreciated.
