Our passion for service includes a commitment to the community we live and work in, and our pledge to do all we can to help our society. In the past, some of the activities to serve our community include the construction of an ultra modern police station in Chawama.

In 2013, our company under its own cost undertook the construction of the Chawama Police Station into a modern police facility. As another way of expressing its corporate social responsibility.
