A friend in needs is a friend indeed.The compassion of the equity bank is now real and proves to the Kenyans that it's a real friend to the sponsored vulnerable group.The beneficiaries of wings to fly can have something to smile about.
The Equity scholarship program "wings to Fly" was formed to aid high performing children hailing from less fortunate backgrounds. The program beneficiaries are selected from across Kenya’s 47 counties, based on their performance in the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examination. It has so far supported 26,304 bright but economically challenged scholars. The MasterCard Foundation (MCF) has so far committed to support 10,000 scholars through two phases of funding with the last intake joining the program in 2021.
Awareness of the program is conveyed through public forums i.e. administrative chief’s forums, places of worship, through radio announcements and social media channels. Application is made at all Equity Bank branches, Equity Agents and on the Equity Group Foundation’s Website. Beneficiaries of the scholarship are selected by the Community Scholarship Selection Board (CSSB), which is made up of key leaders in the community and is chaired by the County or sub-County Director of Education.
Thanks to equity family. Wings to fly now offers extended support during this period of covid 19 pandemic. They are doing so by installing lighting systems and opening of account for the guardian/parents. Every month the sponsored kid will be getting 3000/-. This is targeting to help the beneficiary during this hard time of covid 19. Great minds always do great things.
Apart from the above support,all benefiting parents are called upon to attend a meeting today to be held in their nearest branch to further gets advice on the same and ironing issues out.
