Education and Learning

There is no substitute for education as a driver for progress and development. Supporting education, therefore, can be seen as an investment in human capital, a down-payment on future growth.

JCBF generates resources to fund scholarship programs to youth and students for academic and non-academic programs. It also supports other learning events, like workshops, seminars and lectures for microentrepreneurs and local government units.
