A community’s future is grounded in a strong educational system. WesternZagros’s education corporate social responsibility initiatives have contributed to the repair and upgrade of existing schools and to donating badly needed school supplies. We continue to work with the local government to support their program of expanding or replacing schools in the Garmian Region.
We have undertaken repairs to six primary schools in our operating region, including upgrading utilities to operate properly and safely, exterior and interior painting, generator repairs and whiteboard/doors replacements. Since December 2009, WesternZagros has donated over 3,000 backpacks containing various school supplies to children in over 30 schools in our operating area.
