In line with Philia Foundation’s strategy, Philia runs a corporate giving programme.
Since 2015, Philia has been partnering with Sup de CO Dakar business school in Senegal through awarding merit-based scholarships to African students. Eight scholarships were granted for the academic year 2015/16 and six for the year 2016/17. Philia also joined in with Sup de Co Dakar to help develop the first Master in Oil Trading and Supply Chain Management, offering students in-country quality education and training in this specific sector.
In 2017, Philia launched a new programme in the Republic of Congo. With support provided by the Russian Embassy in Brazzaville, Philia selected three students and matched them with higher technical education institutions in Russia. Over two years, the Congolese students pursued their studies at the Don and Tambov State Technical Universities, graduating with Master degree in June 2019.
In 2019, Philia offered financial support to Josephine Agyeman-Duah, a DPhil student from Ghana at Nuffield Department of Women’s & Reproductive Health, University of Oxford. Thanks to the grant, Ms Agyeman-Duah whose her research focuses on issues experienced by children born preterm, was able to attend a specialized conference in Finland.
