Australian listed company exploring for graphite near Epanko village in Ulanga district has brought joy to several children living with disability in the district after a recent donation of wheelchairs designed for children living in rural environments. Speaking at the handover ceremony in Mahenge,Kibaran Resources Country Director Grant Pierce said that the donation is part of the company's corporate social investment which is aligned with the company’s values in supporting communities where the company has its operations.
Some of the wheelchairs were donated to the regional hospital in order to serve disabled children who attended the facility for medical care. The wheelchairs are made by a Non Governmental Organization in Australia, Wheelchairs for Kids, a voluntary organization made up of the retired Australian citizens who are committed to assist those in need.
On August 20th, 2014, Kibaran Resources donated 148 desks to Epanko Primary School, which was facing a severe shortage of desks. The donation of the desks has enabled 292 students to sit during their classes. Kibaran Resources is currently undertaking a feasibility study to build a mine at Epanko. The development would provide employment opportunities and business opportunities in the broader community which will help alleviate the unemployment problem in the region.
