Skretting gets kids to school
In 2018, Skretting Vietnam presented nearly 1300 scholarships to children from low-income families in farming areas. This project, Skretting gets kids to school, is part of Skretting's CSR initiatives, focusing on education for local communities of Skretting in 10 provinces in nationwide.
This was the 7th continuous year to implement this programme with a total of more than 10,000 scholarships delivered to children in community development programmes that provided positive impacts for schools in farming areas in the presence of Skretting representatives, local government officers, customers, students, teachers and parents. The scholarship aims to motivate children to advance their studies and help their parents to cover part of the education costs. The company hopes this support will encourage children to continue their education and gain knowledge that will benefit their future.
Skretting is committed to contribute education since this is one of the most important factors to improve living standards and ensure sustainable development of the community. The gifts were packed in reusable bags made from packaging of Skretting products that were collected from the used-bags of its customers. The message is to encourage farmers and local people to use recycle bags, limit plastic bags to protect environment. This initiative is in line with our mission of 'Feeding the future''.
