Beacon scholars Faraja Laiser and Collins Mgomella recently were honoured by a visit from their regional coordinator.
The Beacon Scholarship is a leadership development programme that nurtures ‘change-makers’. They find young people with leadership potential who have financial need, provide them with access to the highest quality education, offer leadership training and ‘high-touch’ mentoring, and create a vertical pathway for transition into leadership positions. The vision is to develop a group of ethical change-makers who have a multiplier effect to generate positive social change.
It is privately funded and presently operates in the UK and East Africa.
The Beacon has developed partnerships with world-class educational institutions such as St Constantine’s International School. Each School contributes 1/3 of a Beacon Scholar’s annual tuition (and where appropriate, boarding) fees; The Beacon contributes 1/3 and the student 1/3.
St Constantine’s also has its own private scholarships for high-achieving students who require financial assistance.
