The Equity Group and Mastercard Foundation (MCF) launched the Wings to Fly scholarship program for Kenyans who are financially challenged and need support for their secondary education.
Top performing children across the country are eligible for support from the two organizations and other partners. Under the Wings to Fly program, Kenyan youth are able to access leadership training, among other financial provisions and benefits.
