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

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.”
