As part of NMSI’s “giving back project”, the dilapidated Kugrago Primary School
building in the Garu-Tempane District of the Upper East Region was renovated by a
team of NMSI’s local employees and volunteers.

The NMSI funded project included the refurbishment of both external and internal
parts of the structure; renovation of one classroom with a concrete floor; and a football
pitch with corner flags and goal posts among others.

The Headmaster of the school, Joseph Ayambila, said he was “extremely thrilled” to have received the
support from NMSI.

Caroline Young, the Corporate Social Responsibility Manager at NMSI said the company is delighted at
the support given to the community. “This is what we enjoy doing. It is not just about bringing a new
district hospital to the area; it is also about what we can do for the community”.
