The SIOC-CDT team worked with local government, local development partners and the Department of Education to identify schools with a high rate of children in need of school shoes. Funding requests from community members who saw a need in certain schools but didn’t have resources to intervene were also considered.
PAIRS OF SHOES
335 pairs of shoes have been distributed
NUMBER OF SCHOOLS
11 schools were visited at a rate of two per day
SIOC-CDT's primary goal is to implement sustainable socio-economic initiatives through partnering with key stakeholders to ensure that beneficiary communities have sustainable income and are empowered to thrive beyond the lifespan of the mine.
