In fulfilling its corporate social responsibility and promoting academic excellence within the African community Zain just recently launched the Zain Africa University Challenge (season 3)!A televised academic quiz competition show that will be aired twice a week here in Kenya ! In its third(3) season the show now encompasses thirty two universities from Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Ghana,Malawi and Zambia
The (32) thirty two universities will compete for the prestigious Zain's Scholar's trophy with ($100,000) One Hundred thousand United States Dollars institutional grants to the winning university and each participant in the winning team will bag ($10,000) Ten thousand dollars each.In total over Over $1 million USD in institutional, individual and travel grants are being awarded! That is quite an amount and will definately make the show a favourite among African Universities.

The show is being hosted by the reknowned actor and academician John Sibi Okumu who is handling his own quite well with background clips being done by Fhareed Kimani. It is being aired on NTV every Sunday and Wednesday!More African corporates should emulate this !
