On Monday July 3rd 2017, Petrotrin launched its annual education outreach campaign targeting the students of 35 primary schools in the several communities neighbouring its exploration, production, refining and marine operations.
This outreach campaign comprises two elements: an education support programme and a vacation food drive. The vacation food programme was conceptualised six years ago to provide support for needy families whose children would have otherwise benefited from the Ministry of Education’s school-feeding programme during the term. The programme involved the voluntary donation of food items by
employees supplemented by support from the Company whilst the education support programme involves the distribution of back to school supplies including book bags and stationary items.
As Petrotrin continues to pursue its strategic objectives and to build a sustainable business, the Company remains mindful of the need to simultaneously invest in its stakeholder communities, strengthen its presence as a good neighbour and provide value to the national community.
