Base Titanium provides significant funding to ensure that bright students from Kwale County and Likoni Sub-county are able to advance their education opportunities. Around 400 scholarships are issued each year covering secondary and tertiary students.


Scholarship Programs


Scholarships cover the full cost of annual tuition fees, which are paid directly to the school or institution.

Base Titanium’s Pepea Scholarship Program is designed to give opportunities to academically gifted students from disadvantaged backgrounds. Beneficiaries at both levels are selected through a rigorous vetting process that assures transparency and equity.

By investing in local human capital, Base Titanium is investing in the future of Kwale County and Kenya more broadly.
