In line with our action under SDG 4, to support schools near our operations, Carmeuse Cote d’Ivoire is proud to have sponsored the National Excellence Day, held on 12 August 2021 in San Pedro, organized by the Regional Director of Education.

This important day celebrates top achieving students from different schools in the San Pedro region.  The event is attended not only by the laureates, but also school teachers and parents, making a total attendance of approx. 400 people. Students who are top achievers in their class receive an award, and the “Best of the best” male and female student award is revealed.

Carmeuse Cote d’Ivoire is happy to have sponsored a brand new computer to Konate Mawa, who won the “Best of the best” female student award.   She also received a scholarship from the minister, to continue her higher education in an excellent private university.  Furthermore, we sponsored trophies for 10 students and dressed all 25 laureates that were selected for this event.

Carmeuse Cote d’Ivoire is looking forward to partaking in the next National Excellence Day in 2022.
