Windhoek, Namibia – The Rani Group, a prominent business entity in Namibia, has announced the allocation of N.dollars 1.4 million for 70 bursaries, aiming to support educational endeavors across the country’s 14 regions. This initiative is part of the company’s commitment to contributing to the education of Namibian children.
According to Namibian Press Agency (NAMPA), Ali Dharani, in an interview with Nampa, the Rani Group is focused on community building. The decision to offer these scholarships stems from the belief that investing in a child’s education is the most significant investment one can make. The 70 bursaries are intended to reach students from all regions of Namibia, particularly those who are in dire need of financial support.
Dharani emphasized that the company annually concentrates on initiatives designed to empower the Namibian people and support local communities. This year’s focus on education follows the company’s previous endeavors in different sectors. He further stated that the beneficiaries of these bursaries are expected to pursue their studies within Namibia, at locally owned institutions, underlining the company’s vision of fostering an educated and proudly Namibian populace.
In the previous year, the Rani Group made a significant contribution by donating 700 wheelchairs, which were distributed equally among all 14 regions of Namibia. This act of philanthropy marked another step in the company’s ongoing efforts to support local communities.
Additionally, Dharani highlighted the company’s investment in education through the establishment of a computer school in the Oshana Region. Described as unique in both the region and Namibia, the school boasts four classrooms and a storeroom, constructed at a cost of N.dollars 1.6 million, funded entirely by the Rani Group.
Dharani concluded by expressing the company’s intention to continue assisting the community in various capacities. He hinted that the focus for the following year might shift towards supporting small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to help them grow and enhance their business operations.
