For many years Orca has run a highly successful scholarship program for Songo Songo Island students, selecting 10 students each year to attend high achieving schools in Dar es Salaam.

Orca funds the entire program, including travel, school fees, uniform, and materials.  In 2017, Orca was proud to see 5 of its scholars graduate and commence University Courses, some with the aim to train as engineers and return to work at the Songas processing facility on Songo Songo Island.

Orca has sponsored 3 teachers to attend Teacher Training College in Dar es Salaam, who plan to return to Songo Songo and use their new skills in the community’s school once graduated.
