Birla Carbon Egypt promotes education

Alexandria, Egypt – We supported classes in three government-run schools to help 400 students achieve better grades. We also provided sports, arts and computer literacy activities to 1,300 students in village schools. Three nursery school facilities, benefiting 400 children and their families, have been established. We ran our “LEARN” program for the second consecutive year, expanding it to allow over 200 children from three villages to participate. The children prepared for the next academic year through a range of scouting, arts and crafts, and healthy habits classes. New activities were introduced this year, including recycling waste materials back into useful objects. Birla Carbon Egypt’s (BCE’s) “Towards a Sustainable Tomorrow” competition for graduating students of the Faculty of Engineering at Pharos University, Alexandria encourages them to relate their graduation projects to sustainability in creative ways. Eight projects were submitted for consideration, with the top four receiving awards at a special ceremony in June 2019. The four winning projects covered the topics of turning waste plastics into fuel, developing more efficient fertilizers, increasing the energy efficiency of buildings and building sustainable cities.
