Equity Group Foundation CSR
Equity Group Foundation (EGF) is a Kenya based not-for-profit foundation established in 2008 as the social arm of Equity Group Holdings. It seeks to transform the lives and livelihoods of the people of Africa. We champion the socio-economic prosperity of low-income people via economic opportunities and skill and capacity building tools with a range of financial and technological innovations to equip and prepare Africans for the future. EGF implements high-impact development programs as a unique, innovative model by leveraging Equity Group’s infrastructure and resources in order to capitalize on the Group’s local presence, mobile tech expertise, and significant trust, and therefore is able to scale successfully and efficiently. The foundation forges strategic partnerships with development partners, governments, the private sector, and local and international organizations to strengthen its work. EGF is committed to impacting the lives of 100 million Africans by 2024.
EGF works alongside a range of well-placed partners to create shared value for our communities, delivering on our promise as a committed corporate citizen while ensuring the long-term success of the Group.
In order to truly help people build pathways out of poverty, EGF understands that we must respond effectively to the continuum of issues that affect people living at the bottom of the pyramid. With this in mind, EGF works to create change through seven strategic pillars:
Agriculture: EGF helps create jobs, improve market access, and expand agricultural production by working in partnership with small and medium-sized farmers to increase their production capabilities, business acumen, and access to technology and financial services. EGF stimulates job creation and Economic growth by providing micro and small entrepreneurs.
Education & Leadership Development: EGF increases access to and transition through secondary and tertiary education and provides leadership and career development in order to break the cycle of poverty and develop the next generation of leaders.
Entrepreneurship: EGF stimulates job creation and economic growth by providing micro and small entrepreneurs with advice, mentorship and entrepreneurship training.
Energy & Environment: EGF promotes the conservation and smart use of natural resources by expanding forest cover, improving water security and promoting the use of renewable energy and energy-efficient technologies.
Financial Education and Inclusion: EGF extends Equity Bank’s efforts to expand access to financial services to the bottom of the pyramid, helping low-income people to lift themselves out of poverty. EGF also improves financial capability and individual and household financial security by connecting women, youth and communities to expert financial literacy training.
Health: EGF increases access to comprehensive health financing and private sector-led, affordable, high-quality, and standardized health services.
