Ufunguo initiative is a Corporate Social Responsibility of IAT. It seeks to give back to the community particularly less fortunate young Kenyans through awarding of scholarships. After the launch of free primary and secondary education, there are huge statistics of high school leavers who cannot afford admission in tertiary institutions especially if they have not qualified for the government-sponsored programs. Thus, the IAT scholarship program dubbed UFUNGUO, seeks to address this situation through awarding of sponsored programs to help the less fortunate access professional skills. The goal is to alleviate the living standards for the vulnerable but capable group of youths in the society. To date IAT through the Ufunguo initiative has awarded scholarships to over 30,000 beneficiaries, thereby giving them hope and a way to fend for themselves and their Families. Our goal is to positively impact by awarding scholarships to 100,000 young Kenyans by 2030.

I had been trying to save for my school fees so that I can achieve my education goal, but I could not manage since my parents had passed on and my relatives were unable to bear the burden of paying for my fees. So a friend of mine was lucky to get the Ufunguo scholarship, so she told me to try applying for it. So I visited the school where I got a very friendly receptionist who further explained to me how I should apply. Fortunately, I was granted the scholarship.
