Nairobi – Prudential Kenya and the Prudence Foundation have signed a partnership of 10 million Swiss, which aims to provide free high school education to 85 students from low-income families.

According to Prudential Kenya CEO, students who sponsor Gwen Kinis will receive not only financial benefits in the form of paid tuition fees, but also the necessary life and social skills to help them become all-round people in society.

“The Foundation has supported educational programs and projects aimed at enabling vulnerable children to receive quality education over the past eight years, because we believe that education is the basis for all forms of development and the catalyst for growth and success in life,” – said Kinis.

The partnership also aims to provide a financial cushion for families who have suffered loss of income and are unable to pay for their children’s education due to the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The loss of learning as a result of the pandemic will have a devastating impact on the future performance and well-being of this generation of children and youth.” Mark Fancy, executive director of the Prudence Foundation.

Since its outbreak two years ago, COVID-19 has disrupted education not only in Kenya but around the world, with the most affected being vulnerable students from disadvantaged backgrounds.
