The scholarship program is having a direct investment into the lives of our Kolombangaran young people.
KIBCA wants to extend a big thank you to its donors: Kolombangara Forest Products Limited (KFPL), 4Nature, Solomon Islands Community Conservation Partnership (SICCP) and several private donors.
Here is what local Kolambangarans are saying about KIBCA’s Scholarship Program:
Piani Lilo (teacher, Kolombangara AC):
KIBCA does a great job for the children of Kolombangara through the scholarship program. The children are really happy because KIBCA assists them with their school fees. I support this KIBCA program and their other ones related to conservation and environment. Good job KIBCA!
Grey Rence (Form 6, Biulah PJS):
The KIBCA scholarship program is very good. It reduces the burden on my parents to pay school fees. I encourage Kolombangara students to support KIBCA’s program.
Saungao (parent, Villa):
I am very happy with the KIBCA scholarship education assistance for my 2 sons who are attending secondary school this year. I hope that KIBCA continues to provide this assistance in 2015.
Olympia (parent, Honiara):
I am very happy with the scholarship program but there needs to be more discussion about the categories for how scholarships are awarded. I think the program should definitely continue.
