In late 2008, on occasion of 125th jubilee of “Drina” existence - the most sold BiH cigarette brand - Management of the Tobacco Factory of Sarajevo made a decision to mark the celebration by a higher cause, i.e. establishment of a charitable project – a Foundation of Scholarship Grants for Students.

 

Tobacco Factory of Sarajevo is not neglecting its community and does its best to contribute to building the prosperity of all segments of social life in BiH, thereby continuously affirming its status of a socially responsible company. Celebration of 125th jubilee of “Drina“ is used as an excellent reason for launching a very important project, both for us and for BiH and that is establishment of the Foundation of Scholarship Grants for Students. Scholarships will be granted equally to students who are in material need or students without parents, as to the most talented ones....“, said Edin Mulahasanović, General Director of the Tobacco Factory of Sarajevo.

 

After a long and comprehensive legal procedure to comply with, the Tobacco Factory of Sarajevo has finally received a decision on registration of the Foundation under the name: Tobacco Factory of Sarajevo Foundation of Scholarship Grants for Students and its abbreviated name: FDS Foundation.
