Chevron's Focus Area: Social Investment, Health, Education
Chevron-Liberia before opening its office in Liberia has constructed water wells and latrine facilities in more than 40 communities in Monrovia and has donated a generator to Grant Mari or Redemption Hospital, among several others, officials say. The company is also expected to fully furnish a computer lab for a vocational training purpose at the Booker Washington Institute in Kakata, Margibi County.
Chevron is expected to conduct a three-year exploratory program which includes a drilling exploration well in the first quarter of 2011.
Chevron recently initiated a five-year, substantial investment in Liberia’s socioeconomic development to support Liberia’s Poverty Reduction Strategy. The Chevron-Liberia Economic Development Initiative (C-LED) is designed to deliver sustainable economic benefits to women, children, and youth through activities focused on education, enterprise development and health.
Through our research and joint planning with the Liberian government, non-government organizations and the donor community, C-LED initiated 13 projects directed primarily toward the much-needed rehabilitation of infrastructure and the provision of equipment in education, enterprise development and health. The donations of the generator and bus are the first of these projects to be completed.
