Bringing benefit to communities and farmers
Nile Breweries Limited in Uganda supports local farmers and communities through a range of projects including investment in boreholes and financial support for the education of underprivileged students.
This year the company handed three boreholes to sorghum farmers from the Kibaale District, bringing the total number of boreholes drilled across Uganda to 11 in three years. This US$ 87,000 investment provides an estimated 9,000 people with 65 million litres of clean water per annum.
The company also granted scholarships to 21 primary school leavers from underprivileged farming families to help them continue their studies at prestigious secondary schools. In addition this year, Nile Breweries Limited has decided to provide secondary school scholarships to all orphans of the terrorist bombings in Kampala on 11 July 2010.
