Education

We support educational programs, research initiatives and bursaries that provide students with the right technical, entrepreneurial and life skills to achieve personal fulfillment, economic independence and compete in a complex and specialized world. We also focus on initiatives that promote literacy and encourage young people to remain in school and complete their education. 

In 2021, we devoted 24% of our overall community investments to educational initiatives.
