Health is key to productivity and development. Tanzania does not have enough health care infrastructure to cater to its increasing population.
The HIV/AIDS scourge has affected the country’s development progress and reduced the population in the active age group. Tanga Cement plc is focused on the support of construction of health facilities in the regions we operate within Tanzania.
Tanga Cement plc is particularly focused on education because as employers we want to contribute to increasing the talent pool from which we recruit whilst simultaneously benefiting the economy and society as a whole. A good formal education however, must be given in the furnished classroom and our involvement is in the construction of the required infrastructure as determined by the communities in the regions in which we operate in Tanzania.
Tanga Cement plc supports community based initiatives that lead to income generation for the communities within the regions we operate in Tanzania. This involves defined support of specific orphanages,particularly those with children orphaned because of HIV/AIDS as well as those infected with the virus.

This involves support of specific conservation and environmental rehabilitation projects. Spheres of influence is defined as investments and activities within defined focus areas in regions where Tanga Cement Company plc operates.
