Working in Communities
ChromTech believes that to be sustainable, productive and safe it must work with and indeed support the communities close to its operations.
In recent years ChromTech has invested significantly in social development initiatives.
SPONSORING MARIKANA HIGH SCHOOL’S LIBRARY
The Today a Reader, Tomorrow a Leader project involved the construction of a brand-new library for Marikana High School, together with new books, resources and a catalogue system. The new building was constructed on the site of the school’s dilapidated swimming school.
GIVING DIGNITY TO HUNDREDS OF MARIKANA’S YOUNG SCHOOLGIRLS
ChromTech recently donated 500 packs of the reusable sanitary towels to high school pupils at Marikana Combined School in Marikana. The packs have already made a major impact on reducing absenteeism and improving the education consistency of many of the young women at the school. Says Finance Manager Stephen Baird: “The lack of menstrual sanitation products forces many school girls in poorer communities to miss vital classroom time, which, in turn, affects their educational performance, diminishing future opportunities. By collaborating with Project Dignity we were able to make a difference to lives in one of the communities near our operation.”
