Upon graduation, students are vetted and after evaluation and upon meeting the criteria, they are placed in the YG Program. This gives our young graduates the opportunity to face the real work environment and also exposes them to work in other affiliates, thereby equipping them for the job market.

Access to Energy
Energy is a basic necessity, like water or food. It is also an essential driver for development, because energy facilitates access to education, communication, information and it improves living standards. Yet, several billion people worldwide do not have access to reliable modern energy and still depend on expensive, inefficient sources of energy.
To promote the emergence of new solutions, Total introduced the Total Access to Energy program, which acts as a project incubator to develop innovative, economically viable models to improve access to energy for low-income communities. To serve these communities deprived of basic energy solutions; Total decided to offer a range of solar lamps that are both less expensive, brighter, and safer than more commonly used lighting sources, such as kerosene lamps, candles and batteries.
Several pathways are being explored, including photovoltaic solar equipments, mini-grids, solar kiosks, & clean cookstoves...
World’s Malaria Day

Fumigation equipment and other safety accessories (nose masks, raincoats, rain boots, safety goggles) as well as fumigation chemicals were donated to the community leadership to be used in the fight against mosquitoes and pests to prevent malaria and other diseases (typhoid, diarrhea, etc.). A short demo was done by the HSEQ Manager on how to use the equipment and a mixture of the chemicals.
