Partnerships

Partnerships in Zimbabwe

Lafarge runs a Partnership in building program, designed to partner with learning institutions in an effort to develop the construction industry, by facilitating learning programmes that can enhance knowledge and skills growth in the sector.

This programe was born out of a realisation that significant construction in Zimbabwe is carried out by masons, many of whom have not had any formal training in construction.

If you would like to know more about this programe, please don't hesitate to contact the our marketing team for further information!
