He listed facilities the company had provided communities as a 65,000-dollar 10-classroom block for the RC Basic School at Denu, a compound wall for the Tokor Junior High School at US$35,000, a recreational ground for US$150,000  at Akporkploe, material support for RC Boys School at Kpedzi and also extension of potable water to the Duta and Akpokploe communities.

Mr Patel said the company, by the projects, was helping government in providing education infrastructure.
