Colgate-Palmolive (India) Limited, the market leader in Oral Care in India, has recently launched its annual Colgate Scholarship Programme. As a part of the programme, more than 500 children can avail scholarships up to Rs. 1 lakh and every consumer who buys the offer-pack gets a free one-month subscription of BYJU’s learning app.
Since its launch in 2009, the Colgate Scholarship Programme has been contributing to the lives of children in a meaningful way. So far, the scholarships have enabled more than 1000 Indian families across 100 cities, to give their children a brighter future – be it in dance, sports, music, or academics.
In the last three years, 14.8 million children have participated in the scholarship programme. In the 2017 edition, about 0.9 million consumers benefitted from the BYJU’s study material provided through the Scholarship packs. The free BYJU’s subscription gives the consumer access to Maths and Science video tutorials for Standard 4 to 12, and can be accessed on the BYJU’s application using a unique code printed inside the Colgate Scholarship packs. For those who are unable to access the BYJU’s app, the study material has been converted into audio lectures, which are made available through a toll-free number provided on the pack.
Comments Issam Bachaalani, managing director, Colgate-Palmolive (India) Limited said, “At Colgate, we believe that everyone deserves a future to smile about and we attempt to bring that alive with our annual Scholarship Programme, which we have been growing significantly every year. This year we have not only increased the number of scholarships but also maintained our partnership with BYJU’s, the learning app, to enable free education through every Colgate Scholarship pack. It is our constant endeavour to encourage more and more Indian families/children to take advantage of the Colgate Scholarship Programme and to be able to support them in securing a better and brighter future.”
