‘Wings to fly’ to stop sponsorship to indiscipline students; Equity bank’s marketing director David Nyamu has warned.
Equity’s wings to fly has issued a warning that it will no longer sponsor any students who are involved in school misconduct or indiscipline.
Equity Bank’s marketing director David Nyamu revealed that out of every 11 students who applied, just one was chosen during the commissioning of 422 student beneficiaries at Garissa University.
“We will collaborate with relevant government authorities to ensure that we take action on any student with indiscipline cases and give the slots to other needy students,” he said.
Nyamu urged the students to exercise good conduct and high level of discipline.
“This is a God-given opportunity for the beneficiaries because so many vulnerable children had applied for the program and missed the slots,” he said.
“We don’t want to hear that the students under this program are the ones misbehaving in schools.”
This year, Wings to Fly, in conjunction with the Ministry of Education, is fully financing 37,000 students for their secondary education through the Elimu scholarship program.
For selected pupils, the comprehensive scholarship includes school fees, shopping, transportation, and pocket money.
