Ghana Manganese Company provides communities with facilities

Mr. Wisdom Adjei Mensah, the Human Resources Manager of the Ghana Manganese Company, said communities must value facilities provided them by companies and protect them.

He said it was sad that many community projects sponsored by companies are abandoned and many were not rehabilitated.

Mr Adjei-Mensah said this at the inauguration of six community projects in Tarkwa.

Beneficiary communities are Tarkwa Banso, Enyinase, Jerusalem, Tamso, Akyem and Nsuta Zongo.

The projects include two community centres at Tarkwa Banso and Jerusalem, a three-unit classroom block with store and office at Enyinase and a four-unit classroom block at Akyem, a 10-seat water closet facility at Tamso and a bore hole at Nsuta Zongo.

Mr Adjei-Mensah said the facilities formed part of the community assistance projects of the company.

He said the peaceful co-existence between the company and its catchments communities would guarantee continuous improvement in the lives of the community.

Mr Adjei-Mensah said the Esuoso Divisional Council had ensured that development projects of the company are evenly distributed.

Mrs Christina Kobina, the Tarkwa-Nsuaem Municipal Chief Executive, commended GMC for their support for communities in its operational area.

She appealed to beneficiary communities to ensure that the facilities are properly maintained and accounts are rendered for those that could be used to raise revenue.

Nana Kojo Asare, a representative of the Esuoso Divisional Council, appealed to GMC to recruit more youth from its catchments area when undertaking projects and also when employment opportunities became available in the mine.
