Investing in our communities
We invest in education, health, sport and recreation, environmental stewardship, infrastructure development and young people – all causes and projects that make a difference to the people of Zambia. We recognise and support the passion and drive of our employees to be valued participants in their communities, providing volunteering opportunities.
Education is a key focus, as we believe that improving education opportunities for an individual is a catalyst for a better life for themselves and their families, communities and society. It is also vital to the future of our industry as the young people we support today are potential employees of tomorrow. We support different types of schools – from community to public schools – through the construction of school infrastructure and provision of learning and teaching materials. In higher education, CEC provides funding to promote innovation, creativity and practical learning in the fields of science and engineering. We work closely with tertiary institutions to equip learners with the knowledge and skills required in modern engineering, and to help prepare them for industry.
Speech by CEC Company Secretary, Julia Chaila, at Handover of School Shoes Donation to Riverain Combined School
The CEC Ladies, in celebration of International Women’s Day, made a donation of school shoes to the children of Riverain Combined School in Kitwe, Zambia. The donation was motivated by the empathy that the CEC Ladies have for the children who walk to school barefooted or with barely covered feet, which can be dangerous and unsanitary. The CEC Ladies believe that education is the most important thing that can be given to children, and improving education opportunities is a catalyst for a better life for individuals, communities, and society at large. The donation of school shoes is one of many social impact initiatives that the CEC Ladies have participated in to give back to the communities around them and to better the quality of life for those who are needy and vulnerable.
