As in previous years, Corporación Quiport has completed its selection and disbursement process for the award of scholarships to students in schools near Mariscal Sucre International Airport. This year, students at 14 educational institutions in Puembo, Pifo, Tababela, Yaruquí, Checa and El Quinche have benefitted from the program.
Andrew O’Brian, President and CEO of Quiport, states “this work is not only gratifying, but is an essential part of our Corporate Social Responsibility Policy. Quiport has a keen interest in the improvement of communities within the airport’s area of influence and, particularly, in seeing that the most vulnerable members have all possible opportunities.”
Quiport’s scholarship program has been running for more than 10 years, providing financial assistance to students at local schools neighboring the airport. Quiport uses a series of parameters to select the recipients of scholarships, including level of vulnerability, the family’s economic situation and whether the student suffers from a serious illness.
On this occasion, Quiport awarded financial assistance to 64 students in neighboring parishes.
