Mongolia: Supporting access to the higher education of the local youth
Badrakh Energy, an Orano subsidiary in Mongolia, is supporting students in Dornogobi Province by giving them the opportunity to study at university. This
helps develop the skills and competences of the Province’s youth, and in the
medium term, allows future company specialists in the region to be trained.
Education is one of the priorities for Orano Mining’s community investment.
Following a particularly harsh winter 2007, a livestock reconstitution project was initiated by the Orano subsidiary in Mongolia. The objective is to support herders neighboring the Zuuvch Ovoo project. Selected by the Local Cooperation Council, the herders receive 50 animals (goats and sheep) for a period of three years. After this period, these herders have the right to keep the newborns from this herd. They only return the original animals to the project, so that other families can benefit from them.
