Equity Group Foundation - Monitoring and Evaluation Officer & Leaders Program Coordinator Jobs in Kenya

The Equity Group Foundation was established in 2006 in recognition of the need to scale up the existing corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives of the Equity Bank Group.

These are: Education and leadership development, agriculture, entrepreneurship, health, innovation and environmental sustainability.

These program areas support the Foundation in realizing its vision and mission.
