Equity Bank has bought a 67-seater bus for Onjiko High School through its Asset Finance solution.

Speaking at the flagging-off ceremony at Equity Centre, Nairobi, the Managing Director of Equity Bank Kenya Gerald Warui emphasized that the bus is more than a mode of transportation; it serves as an inspiration for academic excellence.

“We believe that inspired students perform better academically, and those actively involved in sports will have the means to pursue and enhance their endeavors,” he stated.

Additionally, Warui highlighted that beyond the school bus, Equity Bank offers a range of products to schools, including financing for teaching and non-teaching staff, clean energy solutions, and more, contributing to cost management and environmental protection.

He further noted that through its Clean Cooking initiative, the Bank also supports learning and health institutions in installing modern kitchens that use clean and sustainable fuels.

Warui also highlighted Equity Bank’s commitment to conservation, engaging learning institutions in tree-growing activities as part of the bank’s 35 million trees planting initiative.

“Additionally, Equity Bank, through its social impact arm, Equity Group Foundation, supports economically disadvantaged yet academically gifted students through programs such as Wings to Fly and Elimu scholarships,” he noted.

The Director further stated that over 55,000 beneficiaries have been supported through secondary school scholarships, with 2,574 beneficiaries within refugee camps in Dadaab and Kakuma.

The Chairman of the Board of Management at Onjiko High School, Dr. James Obondi, emphasized the significant impact of the partnership on the school’s activities, serving as motivation for both students and the entire school community.

The Principal of Onjiko High School, Joseph Were, expressed gratitude for the fulfillment of a dream through the partnership with Equity Bank. He highlighted the school bus as just one of the ways in which the school has benefited from this impactful collaboration.
