To sign up for M-PESA Go, parents and guardians can self-onboard an already registered SIM card via or visit any Safaricom outlet. They will be required to have an active SIM card registered on M-PESA, a valid identification document as well as the child’s birth certificate.

Leveraging the M-PESA Super App, we plan to introduce a financial literacy platform that will equip children with tools for managing money,” – said Peter Ndegwa, CEO, Safaricom PLC.
