projects that have impact

The study scheme is a self-sustainable scheme that was launched in 1993 with an initial capital investment by the company. More than 20 children of employees receive tertiary education through this scheme on an annual basis. Loans for further studies are awarded to the employees’ children based on predetermined repayment terms. The staff at the crèches and aftercare centres are fully trained in early childhood development (level 4) in order to provide quality support to the children.
