Handing over the books, Bralirwa’s Managing Director, Sven Piederiet, said the company is committed to building the capacity of residents in the area.
“Bralirwa is not living in isolation; it is an integral part of the Rwandan society.
As such on this special occasion of our 50th anniversary we would like to show our continued commitment to our corporate social responsibility programmes,” he said.
He announced that Bralirwa has earmarked Rwf 250 million for the construction of Rambo Secondary School which is also located in the district.
