At Molecor, we are deeply committed to making a positive impact on both the planet and people through our activities. To enhance our social performance, we actively engage in various initiatives, including collaborations with NGOs, contributing to mitigating social challenges in our communities.

For the second time, we have partnered with the Agua Pura Association, an organization that works in coordination with the local NGO Agua de Coco. This collaboration focuses on the KERE project in southern Madagascar, addressing famine caused by severe drought. The project's main objective is to provide sustainable access to drinking water while supporting education, health, and food production.

Our recent collaboration with Agua Pura facilitated the installation of a photovoltaic solar pump in a 100-meter well constructed last summer. This installation ensures a reliable water supply for the School of Sapphires, operated by Agua de Coco in the village of Antsomadiro.

Antsomadiro, located in the Atsimo-Andrefana region, is home to approximately 1,500 people living in extreme poverty, many of whom work in sapphire mines to survive. The School of Sapphires aims to promote education for the community's children and protect vulnerable girls from sexual exploitation.

The well provides the school's 750 students with 5 liters of water each day to share with their families, as the rest of the village lacks water. Additionally, the water is used to irrigate the school garden, where moringa is cultivated as a nutritional supplement, enhancing the meals provided to the children and helping keep them out of the mines.
