Equity Group Foundation and Mastercard Foundation have partnered to support more than 14,600 students in the Wings to Fly and Elimu scholarship programmes to access education at home.

Secondary school students have been provided with a solar-powered device to ensure access to government-approved lessons aired on radio and TV stations with the current Covid-19 lockdown.

Additionally, each of the secondary school students and 800 alumni of the Wings to Fly scholarship programme currently in technical and vocational training institutions will receive a monthly stipend for June through to August.
