We are committed to developing the young generation in Tajikistan through education. We awarded scholarships to students from low-income families to pursue their undergraduate studies in local institutions of higher learning.

We continued to support the Kurgan Nursing Home, donating medical supplies and beds to improve the living conditions of the nursing home and provide a better quality of life for its elderly residents.

ICG recognises the importance of balancing business sustainability with social responsibility and remains fully committed to supporting and developing the local communities in which we operate. We believe that such initiatives allow us to give back to society while providing our employees with meaningful opportunities to connect with the communities around us.

As part of our ongoing community outreach, we carried out a broad range of corporate social responsibility (“CSR”) initiatives to improve and raise the living standards of the less privileged.

In Tajikistan, we donated a 40,000 kV power transformer to the Yovon district’s transmission substation to alleviate the power outage problem and improve the power supply reliability within the city. We hope to continue to work closely with the Tajikistan government to help to upgrade basic infrastructure to enhance living conditions for the local communities.

In Kazakhstan, we donated 155 metric tonnes of cement to the local administrations of the Almaty region and the local community nearby the Alacem cement plant. The donated cement towards infrastructure developments and improvements, such as building a new mosque in Sary-Ozek.

We engaged with vulnerable and disadvantaged communities living in the nearby villages surrounding our cement plants through numerous meaningful social initiatives. These efforts include distributing essential goods to low-income families, senior citizens, single mother with terminal illness, and school supplies to needy children.

As part of our commitment to promote the development of sports in Kazakhstan, we also sponsored a local volleyball team in the Almaty region.As we expand our footprint in the region, we will continue to be active in the community and contribute to worthy social causes that can improve lives and uplift the underprivileged communities we serve.
