KCB Foundation scholarship beneficiaries launched an Alumni Club on 26th Aug. 2022 at KCB Leadership Centre. The Club is meant to provide an opportunity for beneficiaries to support each other past their tertiary education level through mutually beneficial interactions and mentorship between alumni and beneficiaries in school. It will also provide a link between KCB Foundation and the alumni, tabling opportunities for discussions on how the two can team up for greater impact.
The alumni club will bring together over 3,500 beneficiaries who have gone through or are presently sponsored by KCB Foundation’s Scholarship programme. KCB Foundation launched its scholarship programme in 2007 to support bright students through their high school education but in 2020 the programme was expanded to include University scholarships. Beneficiaries are provided with comprehensive support ranging from tuition fees, mentorship, transport, and upkeep among others.
During her speech at the event Group Director Marketing, Corporate Affairs & Citizenship, Rosalind Gichuru said, “I want to thank KCB Group for providing us with an opportunity to create a positive impact among the youth. It is inspiring to hear our alumni share their stories and see them progress over the years into outstanding career people. Thank you for making us proud. I want to challenge all the beneficiaries presently in the programme to not squander this opportunity. I encourage you to show up and do your best in your studies as well as in the market place”
