2011

During 2011 we will be placing most of our community work in Zambia. The company has committed $120,000 to commence building a new school and a new clinic in the North of the country in an area near to the Fwaya Fwaya Emerald Belt. We will be guided through this project with the help and support of the Emerald mining company Gemfields Plc, who have already successfully implemented one scheme of this kind in the area.

The school project will start by forming a parent teachers association (PTA) and working as a team, we will decide the best location and the best format for the school. The clinic will be built following a very similar method as the Nkana Clinic which was orchestrated by Gemfields.

Throughout 2011 we will continue to also financially support the UK division of Earthwatch. We have a very close working relationship with this charity whose focus is on conducting hands on scientific research of some of the most urgent environmental challenges that we face.
