How do you help the Tanzanian population in the Tulawaka area?
We believe our main contribution is in the creation of wealth from mineral resources that have no value if they remain unexploited. Wealth translates into job creation, education and training, infrastructure development and an improved living environment for all communities located away from major urban centres. MDN further contributes directly to surrounding communities through cash donations and through physical improvements, including drilling of artesian wells, organization of children’s activities, etc. The Tulawaka mine (MDN/African Barrick Gold) further contributes by assisting in the construction of new permanent infrastructure, such as dispensaries, community halls, food markets, etc. In addition to a number of other charitable activities.
