GDC supports the achievement of education for children in the areas where we operate. We will equip and rehabilitate educational institutions to establish model schools. These efforts will contribute towards the Millennium Development Goal of increasing access to education at the primary level by 2015.
In order to enhance our internal human resource capacity GDC may, based on merit, sponsor deserving but needy students interested in pursuing mechanical and/or electrical engineering degree courses.
The Millennium Development Goal on the eradication of extreme poverty and hunger by 2015 creates the imperative for all sectors- the corporate, civil society and government to collaborate on income generation, food security, job creation and poverty alleviation initiatives. GDC will actively engage young and innovative youth from our areas of operation to improve the economic status of the communities.
GDC will ensure environmental stability, increase forest cover and protect water catchments areas.
Provision of Water and Health
Clean water not only sustains life but prevents water-borne diseases. GDC will support projects that conserve water sources and explore new methods of harvesting rain and underground water. GDC will support the rehabilitation of water pans and sink boreholes for the communities. With regard to health, GDC will facilitate access to affordable health care among the communities we work in.
Preservation of Art, Culture and Sports
GDC will work with communities to preserve and promote their art and culture for posterity. GDC will also encourage sporting activities to foster peace between communities and competitiveness among schools.
