Ninety two scholars under the Equity Leadership Program (ELP) comprising of Wings to Fly alumni beneficiaries as well as those who topped the 2019 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education examination in their respective sub counties have received admission to 43 global universities. The institutions are across five continents in different countries including the United States, Canada, Germany, Ghana among others. The number of beneficiaries admitted under the Program is 633.
Equity Group CEO Dr. James Mwangi noted that despite the Coronavirus pandemic, Equity Group has been able to mentor bright, promising youth, “We are proud of our ELP scholars for the hard work that they have put into this. Their dedication, consistency and perseverance has seen them gain admission into some of the best institutions of higher learning in the world including the Ivy League Universities.”
Maxwell Ojiambo, a Wings to Fly alumnus who is set to join Stanford University to pursue Electrical Engineering said the Wings to Fly experience taught him well, “Equity took a chance on me and they turned me into a promising young man with big dreams and a great vision for the future. I am truly grateful for the experience. Another scholar, Joanne Nekoye, lauded the initiative. She said her application to Brown University, where she is supposed to pursue Computer Science, was seamless.
