Equity Bank Wings to Fly; Two thousand academically promising scholars from needy backgrounds will benefit from comprehensive secondary school scholarships in 2022/2023 Form One selection cycles fully funded by Equity Bank.

The Bank has contributed Shs 2 billion to Equity Group Foundation (EGF), the social impact arm of the Group in support of the Wings to Fly program that has successfully facilitated over 37,000 beneficiaries to access quality secondary school education in collaboration with other partners such as Mastercard Foundation, KfW, USAID, UKAID/DfID, World Bank/Government of Kenya, among others.

For the 2021 academic year, EGF had 10,705 slots for scholarship programs but received over 114,000 applications – the highest demonstrated level of need.

Equity Group Foundation Executive Chairman, Dr. James Mwangi emphasized, “Education remains a high impact tool in transforming society, one child at a time. The cumulative effect is the transformation of lives and livelihoods.”

He noted that the bank continues to support not only in Wings to Fly but also in the Equity Leaders Program which has placed close to 7,000 scholars on paid internships thus providing a path where the top-performing students transition from learning to earning soon after receiving their KCSE results.

Over 17,000 students from both the Wings to Fly and Equity Leadership Programmes have accessed university education with 900 having been admitted to international universities in 26 countries.

“As we look forward to another selection this year, Equity Group Foundation will continue working with community scholarship selection boards on selection an extended partnership that promotes mentorship and coaching for the next generation of leaders” Dr. Mwangi added.

The Equity Leadership Program scholars who have finished their medical degrees have already established 54 Equity Afia Medical Clinics to give back to society by offering affordable high-quality health services. Last year the clinics received 701,000 patient visits.

He pointed out, “Equity Group continues to invest in its connection to the community. We are delighted that through the additional scholarships 2,000 children are assured of quality high school education. We are grateful for the opportunity to empower the youth of this country and give them the Wings to Fly and to realize their dreams and impact at a global level.”

The 2,000 scholarships will be distributed over the next two Form One intakes to coincide with the last cohorts of Kenya’s 8.4.4. system of education after which the country transitions to the competency-based curriculum.
