Our Corporate Social Investment Projects
Our major CSI projects:
We operate from the premise that communities should be better off because D&M Rail Construction is present and so we draw our labour from the communities through which our projects pass.
We have developed a comprehensive CSI Policy which serves as our guiding principle in supporting various types of Social Investment initiatives.
Some of the notable such areas are as follows:
With education being one of our major pillars, we have been and continue to support the EduVision Online Learning initiative.
Together with other donors, D&M Rail Construction proudly supports the above organization, which assists over 800 learners in grades 10 to 12 with online learning. Utilising smartboards and hi-speed internet connectivity, these learners can participate on first world levels of learning.
Over ten schools in Namibia benefit from this project.
We further provide in the growth process of students at institutions of higher learning and assist the University of Namibia (UNAM) with sponsorship for its best performing student in the civil engineering faculty and we have built two rail sections (an old type one and a modern line) for civil engineering students to gain a hands-on experience of the railway construction discipline.
We support a myriad of efforts by credible organisations involved in broad-based community work. Examples of these are the Pastor Ngeno Nakamhela Foundation based in the sleepy town of Kalkfeld. The organization does sterling work in uplifting the socio-economic status of residents and D&M Rail is proud of its association with this foundation.
We further assist with various town and village development initiatives and some of the beneficiaries of this programme have included the village of Kalkfeld and the towns of Otjiwarongo and Otavi amongst others.
Aside from providing assistance towards education for children, we also focus on the needs of vulnerable children. In this regard, we continue to support child welfare initiatives such as children’s homes in various towns.
We continue to support ad-hoc requests for support in various forms.
Our CSI programmes are in excess of N$400,000.00 per annum.
