Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today. Spoken by Malcom X, the words are no less relevant today.

The importance of education is not lost to Kenyans. Many children and parents know that making good grades, working hard and getting an education will improve you chances to make something of yourself.

Education not only teaches us the basic fundamentals needed to be functioning members of society, but also enables us to be engaged, empowered and ethical citizens.

It is a powerful tool in creating a stronger and more socially responsible society. To make choices that benefit ourselves, our families and our country.

Now, in line with their promise to transforming people lives, Safaricom’s new Shinda Mamili na Tunukiwa promotion aims to help people achieve their education goals.

“We are offering Sh25,000 worth in school vouchers to 1200 Kenyans at the regional level ensuring no one is favored over the other.

“When you think about it, education is the only way a society or community can change its status quo. Safaricom has identified this and is pushing for these non-transferable vouchers to Kenyans from all walks of life.”

The vouchers will be addressed to learning institutions ensuring that those who need the money the most get it to change their lives and the lives of those around them.

To have a chance to win the school vouchers, Safaricom customers need to dial *444# and buy any of the calling, SMS and browsing bundles to be awarded entry points. Ten points will be awarded for daily bundles and 500 points for monthly bundles. Customers can also double your airtime by buying the Tunukiwa bonus airtime.

The campaign which will run till the 27th of March will see more than five million people win with Tunukiwa – That’s one in 5 Safaricom customers. Prizes include, eight grand draw winners of Sh2million per region, 80 winners of Sh500,000 every week per region, 1,200 school fees vouchers and 2,000 neon smartphones. The offer is open to both post pay and prepay customers.
