The Palabora Foundation was established in 1986 and has been operating in local communities since then. The foundation is the sustainable development arm of Palabora Mining Company and its corporate social investment programmes are directly aligned with the core business of the mine.
"To be a leading and sustainable social-economic development foundation for the benefit of Ba-Phalaborwa."
"Empowering the Community through development."
"…there is a clear and compelling need for successful corporations to play a role in helping to create employment opportunities."
They achieve this by working in partnership with communities within a 50km radius of Phalaborwa in the fields of:
- Skills Development;
- Enterprise Development; and
- Community Health.
The major funder of the Palabora Foundation in the last 26 years has been the Palabora Mining Company.
