One of the ways in which the company gives back to the community is through providing full scholarships to needy students within our cane catchment area. So far, the company has provided full scholarships to over twenty students, several of whom are currently in the universities in the country. Some of the students sponsored are currently working within the factory.
KSAIL also opens its gates to schools, universities, and tertiary institutions to bring their students to tour the facilities and learn more about the production of sugar and operations of a sugar factory.
Other CSR activities include fundraising for the many schools, orphanages and tertiary institutions within the four counties from where the company sources its cane viz Kisumu County, Nandi Hills, Kericho and Kakamega County.
KSAIL has currently proposed to partner with an NGO to provide educational scholarships for more than 150,000 students per year in day schools within the four counties.
KSAIL has a policy to donate to needy causes within its area of operations and further afield. The donations take the form of building materials for the construction of schools, churches and health centres.
Other donations go towards improvement of learning institutions, books, learning materials etc.
The company normally provides encouragement materials and gifts to teachers and students in schools in the neighbourhood who had performed well in the national examinations.
During festive and religious holidays and ceremonies, KSAIL provides beddings, equipment for the disabled, kitchen utensils and other gifts for the needy.
