SKOL Brewery Ltd launches second edition of its scholarship program
In 2021, SKOL Brewery Ltd under the Patronage of Mrs. Maïté Relecom, Co-Owner of Unibra Group, a Belgian family-owned company which SKOL Brewery Ltd is part of, launched a yearly scholarship program for SKOL Employees’ Children pursuing secondary (Technical and Vocational Education and Training included) and undergraduate studies.
As secondary students are preparing to go back to school soon, SKOL has launched the second edition of the scholarship program to allow more students who are eligible to enroll and benefit from it.
The scholarship program supported 59 students who are in secondary schools and 6 students attending university in the first year.
One of the employees who benefited from this program said : “The scholarship provided by SKOL has covered the total amount of the school fees that I was supposed to pay for my three kids. This allowed me to save that amount and invest it in order to develop my family. I am thankful to my employer for having thought about this great initiative.”
The scholarship program was launched to harness and nourish the capabilities that lie within the Rwandan youth, particularly SBL Employees’ Children and contribute to their education and skills development. SKOL Brewery Management and Mrs. Relecom are very happy to see its impact only one year after its launch.
