Initiated in 2002 by Imbuto Foundation, the ‘Edified Generation Scholarship’ programme financially supports bright students from economically vulnerable backgrounds in their pursuit of education.
A total of 9601 students have been sponsored through the programme.
The Managing Director of Vivo Energy Rwanda, Saibou Coulibaly has said that the company is proud of existing partnership to change lives of children from vulnerable families.
“We are honored to join hands with Imbuto to support 10 young, vulnerable girls through the ‘Edified Generation Scholarship Program’. Five years ago, we started a long and impactful partnership with Imbuto Foundation in an Education Sponsorship program. Education is one of our fundamental pillars at Vivo Energy. We are delighted to be able to impact the lives of these young girls,” he said.
“When the opportunity arises, we will go the extra mile and enroll some of them in our ‘young talent program’ aimed at equipping young graduates with first-hand skills through an internship at Vivo Energy Rwanda,” added Coulibaly.
He revealed that each of girls will get a package of US$300 to cater for school fees, health insurance, uniform and other scholastic material.
