$100K for Namosi, Waidina students

September 12, 2013

This year, over 80 tertiary students from the province of Namosi and the tikina ‘o Waidina, Naitasiri, have benefited from an education assistance programme.

The total value of assistance for Semester Two stands at $100,000. This is in addition to $130,000 paid out for assistance in Semester One, 2013.

“We are pleased that many of the students assisted in Semester one passed their exams, and are now being assisted again to continue their studies into Semester Two,” said the NAmosi joint venture’s country manager, Greg Morris.

Mr Morris reiterated that support for education and training was a central value for the company.

“We have worked closely with educators, the Tikina Namosi Landowners Committee (TNLC) and other stakeholders to review the results, and strengthen the education assistance programme to ensure funds are used effectively.”

Over the last four years the company has spent over $800,000 on its education assistance programme.

The Namosi Joint Venture (NJV) is a group of three companies who have come together to explore for and potentially mine mineral resources in Namosi and Naitasiri Provinces.

Bribery rife even in the Namosi Highlands.
