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.
