Rössing Uranium recently donated an end-of-life utility vehicle to the AIMS Vocational Training Center in Arandis for training the center’s auto mechanic apprentices. The vehicle has been in service with the mine for many years.
AIMS Mechanic Instructor Valde Haihambo expressed his gratitude, adding that the donated vehicle will “help us a lot in delivering our training.”
“We believe that education is a collective responsibility, and we are grateful that Rössing Uranium contributes to the social development of our society and invests in the younger generation,” he said.
Previously, the center had to send its apprentices to workshops located in other cities, which imposed an additional financial burden on the trainees.
The mine’s director of corporate communications, Daylight Ekandjo, stressed that the donation is a response to societal needs. “We consider continuous training and skills development to be very important,” she said.
“Different investments, like the one we are witnessing today, are all seen as contributing positively to the needs of society by providing support to communities without creating dependency.
The vehicle was received at a donation ceremony on Friday April 22, 2022 by the center manager, Mrs. Florida Husselmann.
