During this period, GoviEx undertook a series of community support and development initiatives.
The company sponsored permaculture training at the Muntanga community, teaching local farmers the benefits and methods of using non-chemical fertilizers. This initiative aimed to reduce farming costs and enhance productivity. Additionally, GoviEx supplied a combination of maize and sorghum seeds to 145 households in Muntanga, emphasizing the drought-resistant nature of sorghum.
Addressing water needs, GoviEx replaced a damaged 10,000L water tank at Syayumbu village, ensuring a consistent water supply for both the community and livestock.
Supporting health related initiatives, GoviEx sponsored the Community Health Assistants Training at Mwachisompola College of Health Sciences and constructed a nurse’s house at the Syamwiinga Clinic. The company further enhanced healthcare infrastructure by donating solar systems to both the Syamwiinga and Chizilika clinics.
Education remained a focal point of GoviEx's CSR efforts. Teacher accommodations at Hachibozu and Muntanga schools were rehabilitated, classroom blocks were constructed at Njame school, and solar systems were supplied to schools in Muntanga and Hachibozu. Six students received sponsorships for vocational training at the Lusaka Vocational Training College.
The company also supported adult literacy and numeracy education, sponsoring the Back to School Project, an initiative run in partnership with the District Education Board Secretaries (DEBS) for the Siavonga and Chirundu Districts. It will focus on providing educational opportunities for adults who may not have had previous access to formal education.
The company also showed its support for chiefs, traditional ceremonies, and sports via its stakeholder engagement program.
