Anglo American Kumba Iron Ore, in partnership with the Northern Cape Provincial Department of Education (DoE), recently launched a major education programme to improve learner outcomes in 27 early childhood development (ECD) sites and 26 schools local to its mining operations, namely Kolomela in Postmasburg and Sishen supporting schools in the Cassel and Dithakong villages.
The programme was launched in Kathu by the MEC of Education, Zolani Monakali and Anglo American Kumba Iron Ore’s Executive for Corporate Affairs, Dr Pranill Ramchander. To this end, an MoU was signed by both parties outlining the areas of collaboration.
The programme is a core part of Anglo American’s Sustainability Strategy. One of the pillars of the strategy is to create thriving communities close to its operations, with education as a key building block.
