Kingho Mining Rehabilitates School in Kegbema Community, Dansogoia Chiefdom

Since the launching of the Government’s flagship Free Quality Education (FQE) Programme by His Excellency President Julius Maada Bio on Monday 20th August 2018, on pre-primary, primary and secondary education for government and government assisted schools, the Head of State called on everyone to support government in achieving its desired goals for the education of the children of Sierra Leone.

Against this backdrop, Kingho Mining Company Limited operating the New Tonkolili Iron (TIO) Mines has a major cluster in its Community Development Action Plan (CDAP) to boost education in its three operational chiefdoms of Dansogoia, Simiria and Sambaia in Tonkolili District, Northern Province of the Republic of Sierra Leone.

Consequently, the company has undertaken rehabilitation of a school in Kegbema Community, Dansogoia Chiefdom. The school, which is closer to the TIO gate from Bumbuna was in a very bad shape and needed very urgent attention. Children in nearby communities had to walk for miles to access improved schools in other towns.

The rehabilitation means that the Kegbema School will provide safe and habitable learning environment for hundreds of children in that particular end of the mining communities. This also will change the walking fatigue and road hazards the pupils were exposed to during travel time to and from long distance schools.

During the rehabilitation process, children and young people in the village were very happy and acknowledged that by thanking Kingho Mining Company for its support.

Meanwhile, it is worth noting that the rehabilitation of the school in Kegbema Community is Kingho Mining Company’s adherence to the content of the CDAP which was approved by the Environment Protection Agency (EPA). Also worth noting is that the project was identified by the community themselves through their Chiefdom Representative Committee (CRC) to help boost the education in that part of the country.
