The Wings to Fly Program is a public-private partnership between the Equity Group Foundation, Mastercard Foundation, UKaid and USAID. The program provides full scholarships that include tuition, room and board to enable academically gifted but economically disadvantaged and vulnerable children to pursue secondary and tertiary education. USAID’s contribution of $17.5 million will provide for comprehensive scholarships, leadership training, and mentoring to at least 2,166 Wings to Fly scholars over a five-year period. Overall, the initiative will support 7,300 young Kenyans with access to a full secondary education by 2019. The selected young people also receive leadership development, career guidance, and personal mentoring to help them realize their potential.
