The program provides scholarships and support to students from low-income backgrounds in Africa, and aims to promote education and leadership development across the continent.
Banga has been an active supporter of the Scholars Program, participating in various events and initiatives related to the program's goals. For example, in 2019, he attended the Scholars Program's annual Symposium in Kigali, Rwanda, where he spoke to scholars about the importance of financial inclusion and the role of technology in promoting economic development.
The Mastercard Foundation Scholars Program has supported students in a number of countries across Africa, including Kenya, Ghana, Uganda, and Nigeria, among others. The program also partners with a number of universities and educational institutions in these countries, providing a range of academic and financial support to scholars.
As for an online space for alumni of the Mastercard Foundation Scholars Program, the Foundation maintains an online platform called "LeadershipConnect," which is designed to connect scholars, alumni, and other members of the Foundation's network. Through this platform, scholars can access resources and opportunities related to leadership development and career advancement. Additionally, the Foundation also maintains a presence on social media platforms like Twitter and LinkedIn, where alumni can connect and engage with each other and the broader community of scholars and supporters."

"The hard work put in to advance financial inclusion is making a great difference, as the new Global Findex numbers demonstrate. Today’s commitments are an important step forward. Many national leaders have already taken bold steps to expand financial access in their own countries. To further that progress, it is important to create the right environment to catalyze private-sector investment and innovation,” said H.M. Queen Máxima of the Netherlands, the UN Secretary-General’s Special Advocate for Inclusive Finance for Development.
