Community

Aurigin recognizes the importance of partnering with the communities in which it operates and strives to assist these communities to attain a better standard of life as a result of the company's involvement. The company has identified local community projects in both Ethiopia and Tanzania which are aimed at ensuring the communities benefit from Aurigin’s presence in the areas.

Team spirit in Kurmuk, Ethiopia

Participating in sport not only promotes a healthy lifestyle, it encourages members of the community to engage with each other in a positive way. In February 2012, Aurigin sponsored the local football team from the Kurmuk district in western Ethiopia for its provincial sports event.

Providing clean water to Kilimamzinga, Tanzania

In late January 2012, the community of Kilimamzinga village received its first supply of a clean water delivery point. The Aurigin team unveiled the new water pump that accesses a supply of clean water via a drill hole. The installation of the new pump reduces the distance to a water source for the community and provides easy access to uncontaminated water. It is hoped this will benefit the overall hygiene and health of the people who live in Kilimamzinga village.
