Delta Corporation Limited has availed $25 million over the past 15 years towards its bursary scheme that has benefited more than 700 students.
This was revealed by Delta human resources director, Marshall Pemhiwa who was speaking at the Delta Corporation bursary induction event in Harare on Wednesday. He said:
To date over 700 students have benefited from the programme over the years amounting to $25 000 000 investment. We have a total of 86 students benefiting from the programme from Advanced-Level up to university this year and these students have been selected with the help of the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education.
Our bursary scheme programme is also complemented by our Delta Technical Institute (DTI) that develops artisans for the group from A- level students. The DTI has seen over 1,300 artisans over the years graduate, and these have been absorbed in various jobs within the organisation.
Delta Corporation runs the Mandel Training Centre which focuses on imparting managerial skills to graduate trainees through its extended programs that cover graduate development programmes and supervisory development.
