Our projects:

Uplifting the Embalenhle community

At Embalenhle, a town neighbouring Evander Mines, Pan African Resources is upgrading the public lighting in the community, which will assist with safety and security at night. Overall, the costs for these high mast lights amounts to US$ 288 500. We are also assisting with the installation of high mast public lighting at the Sakhisizwe Village at a cost of US$ 86 600. The provision of the lights is in line with the requirements of the integrated development plan of the Govan Mbeki local municipality and the need was identified following a public consulting and community engagement.

The Qabso Cooperative

Better management and processing of physical waste at Embalenhle township will contribute towards improved living conditions and reduce in environmental pollution. We have established a local community enterprise, the Qabso Cooperative, to help deal with the community’s refuse removal and recycling, which has led to further employment and skills development opportunities for community members.

Boosting infrastructure at Barberton

To improve water supply infrastructure in Barberton, Pan African has contributed 10 water tanks and assisted with the maintenance of three boreholes that provide potable water to certain communities. We also offered our water tankers to the local municipality during the initial COVID-19 lockdown period to assist with water delivery, to ensure communities had access to water and sanitation.

In addition, diesel generators were supplied to the villages of Mlambongwane and Noordkaap to provide temporary electrification requirements for the communities at a total cost of US$ 42 100.
