The Maroy Foundation has generously pledged £50,000 to support three Homerton undergraduate students in need, with priority to those from refugee, carer, asylum seeker, migrant and other underrepresented backgrounds.

The Maroy Foundation was established in 2015 by Mr King Maroy, with an initial focus on health and education in South Kivu in the Democratic Republic of Congo.  As well as funding the Maroy Foundation Hospital in Bukavu, DRC, the foundation offers fully comprehensive support for the 2023/24 academic year to 75 young people in secondary education across South Kivu.  

King's son Justin Maroy studied Human, Social and Political Sciences at Homerton, 2015-18.  He says of his late father, "I’m proud that his legacy and love for community and education lives on through this scholarship programme—because as he always said 'it takes a village.'' He taught me to give back when you have success".
