County Social Development Fund

The ArcelorMittal Global Foundation is committed to giving back to the communities they work in. Through the ArcelorMittal County Social Development Fund, residents of Bong, Grand Bassa and Nimba will reap some direct dividends from the exploitation of iron ore in their communities. In line with the Mineral Development Agreement between ArcelorMittal and Government of Liberia, 3 million USD will be contributed annually throughout the contractual period of ArcelorMittal investment in Liberia to provide technical support to vet and monitor various projects; build capacity of the development management committees in the three counties; fund development projects generated by the counties.
