IHS   Rwanda   and   the   Imbuto   Foundation   have signed   a   Memorandum   of   Understanding   (MoU),    to   renew   IHS   Rwanda’s commitment   to   the   ‘Edified   Generation’   scholarship   programme.

Under   this programme,  IHS  Rwanda  is  providing  financial  scholarships  for  150  students through the 2021-2022 academic year.

The  ‘Edified  Generation’  scholarship  programme  was  launched  by  the  Imbuto Foundation  in  2002  to  financially  support  academically  talented  students  from lower   income   backgrounds.

The   programme   currently   supports   almost   700 secondary school students from 102 schools across the country.

“Thank you to IHS for the partnership over the years to support the education of our young and talented Rwandans,” said Sandrine Umutoni, Imbuto Foundation Director General.

“As the Imbuto Foundation, celebrated last November 20 years of engaging, educating, and empowering communities, we greatly appreciate partners like you, who believe in our mission, and give us the reassurance that the private sector can also play a major role, to join the efforts of the government and the civil society, in fostering productive and engaged citizens.”
