Kingho Mining Company Limited has through its Community Development Action Plan (CDAP) project rehabilitated and handed over a school to the residents of Kamaria Village, Sambaia Chiefdom, Tonkolili District, Northern Province of the Republic of Sierra Leone.
The school is in one of the operational communities and is providing primary education to over 300 pupils in the Kamaria village and about 10 villages in its environs. The rehabilitation included the face lifting of the school from a mud house to an ultramodern structure with convenient seating and leaning capacity.
Speaking during the handing-over ceremony, Mansa Musa Kargbo, Section Chief of Kamaria said they are grateful for the gesture. He said, “before now, especially during the rains, there is no learning for our children because the structure was not complete.” The Chief assured of the community’s support in ensuring that the project is utilized so that children in the remotest part of the section can access free, quality and affordable education.
Meanwhile, in another educational development, Leone Rock Metal Group and its subsidiaries Kingho Mining Company and Kingho Railway and Port Company have during the celebration of the Day of the Africa Child 2022 donated assorted learning materials to pupils of their operational communities in Wilberforce, Freetown; Tonkolili and Kamasondo respectively.
The move, which is part of the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is geared towards boosting the learning morale of the pupils and as well making the company socially responsible in investing in the education of residents of the direct impacted operational communities.
