OSHAKATI – The Rani Group has put aside N$1.4 million for 70 bursaries as part initiative to educate a Namibian child.
The company’s managing director Ali Dharani said they believe in building the community, hence their handover of scholarships for students from all the 14 regions.
In an interview with Nampa, Dharani said they believe the biggest investment a person can ever make is investing in the education of a child.
The 70 bursaries will be distributed to all regions in aid of those in dire need of support.
“Every year we focus on an initiative that aims to empower our people and hopefully support local communities in which they operate as a way of giving back,” he said.
According to him, those to benefit from the bursaries are expected to study in Namibia and locally owned institutions with the hope of having an educated nation that is proudly Namibian.
Last year, the company donated 700 wheelchairs that were to be distributed equally in all the 14 regions.
The company also invested in a computer school that was opened in the Oshana region, the school is described as one of a kind in Oshana and in the whole of Namibia. The school boasts four classrooms and a storeroom built at a cost of N$1.6 million donated by the Rani Group.
Dharani stressed that they are doing the little they can to assist the community, and hopefully next year they might focus on small and medium enterprises to boost them and hopefully grow their business. -Nampa
