Tronox invests in educating the youth

Tronox Mineral Sands hosted a stakeholder session on Tuesday 4 February at the Smelter in Saldanha with representatives from local schools and West Coast Community HIV/Aids Initiative from the Vredenburg and Saldanha areas.

Parties engaged in an open discussion around the value that the sponsorship received from Tronox in 2019 gave the beneficiaries, which are people affected with HIV/Aids, and the learners at the schools.

The West Coast HIV/Aids Initiative Centre utilises the funds for administrative costs and to assist towards HIV/Aids programmes aimed at the local community, said Joshua Domorog, Chairperson of the West Coast HIV/Aids Initiative Centre.

Schools used the funds received to employ School Governing Body (SGB) teaching posts for maths and science teachers as well as hosted maths and science winter and spring school programmes, all aimed at improving learner results and the school’s overall performance. “Tronox has been involved with our school for many years, and we have only had a good standing relationship with them. The donation that they make to our school really gives us the opportunity to fulfil our mandate to deliver quality education and opportunities to our learners,” said Paul Haricome, Principal of Diazville High School in Saldanha.

The CSI recipients received the following sponsorships in 2019:. Weston High School in Vredenburg received R200 000.. Diazville High School in Saldanha received R200 000.. West Coast Community HIV/Aids Initiative in Vredenburg received R250 000.

“As Tronox, we have a vested interest in supporting and uplifting the community we work in, which is in line with our values. We honour our responsibility to create value for our stakeholders, and by engaging and building solid relationships we will be able to deliver on our commitments.” said Nozuko Basson, Tronox Regional Manager: Communities and Corporate Affairs.

Tronox strongly believes that they should play a leadership role in improving the quality of life in the communities where they operate and continually challenge themselves to promote sustainable growth.
