The nature and scope of our social projects vary according to the specific characteristics of each community. They are implemented in Nigeria, São Tomé and Príncipe, Cameroon, Gabon, and the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. Our action specifically focuses on projects enabling a better access to medical care, primary and secondary education, and better living conditions. These can range from malaria prevention training to the provision of generators, the rehabilitation of classrooms or the construction of latrines and wells.
Alignment of corporate and local priorities is a key driver of Addax Petroleum's community relations programmes. We believe that the fundamental needs of a community should be addressed by the members of the community. Therefore, we partner with organisations and with our employees living and working in the community to identify the projects that provide the most value and most appropriately meet community needs. These programs deliver financial support for a range of education, training, and infrastructure projects that offer real and immediate benefits to people.
To help identify projects, Addax Petroleum hosts regular town hall meetings and local stakeholder consultations to gather information and evaluate needs in the community. Examples of the new projects developed and supported in Nigeria include assisting host communities to form co-operative societies to enable access to soft loans, developing partnerships to provide micro credit for host communities and developing ophthalmologic campaigns benefiting the communities of Izombe and Eziorsu in Imo State. In all locations where it operates, Addax Petroleum continues to focus on programmes and facilities, such as schools, roads and clean water systems, which create an immediate benefit for the communities..
