Health and education

Genel’s stakeholder engagement process has identified health and education as being a key focus area for the company’s social investment strategy. Therefore, each year Genel focuses on addressing the needs of the local community and carefully considers how the company’s resources can be shared.

In partnership with TTOPCO, our medical teams periodically share their services with neighbouring villages by offering routine medical checks. In total, 2019 saw 47 medical visits made to 10 villages surrounding Taq Taq and over 437 patients receiving medical support.

In the Qara Dagh region, major projects carried out in 2019 included provision of kerosene and heaters this past winter for 36 local elementary and secondary schools attended by a total of 1,754 students. Additional efforts were made to improve the local learning environment by donating toys and funding the carpeting of a local kindergarten, supplying sports equipment to a sports club, and purchasing a set of computers for the library. Each one of these activities offers much needed resources and services, and has an enduring impact on neighbouring communities.
