At a national level, Lafarge engages with government departments and trade associations to highlight issues that face the building materials industry. Lafarge is also committed to supporting organisations and individuals in the communities around its operations and leading the way with good corporate social responsibility. Lafarge recognises the importance of being a good neighbour, trusted business partner and employer of choice.
Lafarge supports local communities through its Charitable Donations towards the support of Health care and Education; participating in community events; involving employees in community activities and encouraging school visits to our site.
It also supports its key stakeholder, the Masons through its Umisili program. This is a technical skills building program that teaches building skills, fully sponsored by Lafarge Cement Malawi and recognised under TEVET.
