Equity Group Foundation Wings to Fly Scholarships

Education & Learning

Purpose

Provide scholarships and leadership development for secondary school students

Why We Partnered

This project provides comprehensive scholarships to academically gifted, yet economically disadvantaged secondary students in Kenya. The program, called Wings to Fly, covers tuition, books, uniforms, and stipends for the entire duration of their secondary education. The program places emphasis on leadership development, career guidance, networking, and mentoring to help these students succeed in school and beyond. Upon graduation, high-performing scholars are given financial support for post-secondary education and are selected for internships at Equity Bank. Wings to Fly is the largest secondary school scholarship program in Kenya.
