The CSR programme in Mali is focussed on our immediate village of Falea. The company has made donations gardening tools to the local women, installed solar lights around the village and donations to the local health clinic. The local schools have received hygiene kits and their toilets have been upgraded. Opportunity for employment being difficult in Falea, the company employs locals to carry out maintenance on the camp and assist in geological work.
The mist recent help consisted of rebuilding the School benches, donations to the Health Centre consisting of a Delivery Table, Office chairs, batteries for solar panels and surgery kit.
Three more Solar lamps were added to the village at the Health Centre, Prefet’s yard and Village Public square.
Market gardening by the local women is a source of fresh vegetable to the village, and in the past, the company has donated water pumps, seeds and tools. In 2019, they received Watering cans and a pack of herbicide. We are consulting with them to help with making this activity more sustainable through training.
