Nguvu Mining A Good Partner To Ghana Through Sports CSR Projects

Recent partnership works by Nguvu Mining Limited, a large-scale mining firm operating in the Western Region, has endeared the company to many, as a strong partner to the Ghanaian economy, particularly in the area of sports development.

The company, since its inception in Ghana’s mining industry, has made conscious and sustained efforts to partner with various sporting groups, a move which underscores the firm’s commitment to promoting sports development in the country.

In October last year, the company singlehandedly signed a sponsorship deal valued at $300,000 with Ghana Premier League champions, Medeama SC, as its headline sponsor, even though the mining firm does not operate in the Tarkwa area.

This intervention by the company, led by its Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Board Chair, Angela List, comes at a time Gold Fields Ghana Limited, which was the club’s headline sponsor, unexpectedly ended its partnership with the club.

It also came at a crucial time the football club, was busily preparing to compete in the CAF Champions League group stage, when the team needed urgent financial support.

Additionally, the 48th edition of the Sports Writers Association of Ghana (SWAG) which was held on January 12, 2024, was also heavily financed by Nguvu Mining, as headline sponsor of the prestigious awards.

Many believe, the commitment shown by the mining firm, is commendable and a strong indication of the company’s goodwill to Ghana’s sports development.

Emulate Nguvu

Mr Emmanuel Osei Amankwa, a retired lecturer and sports enthusiast told The Anchor in Accra on Tuesday, May 7, that Nguvu Mining’s investments so far in the area of sports is admirable and should be emulated by other multinational companies operating in the country to create more jobs for the youth.

He said in other jurisdictions like Europe, sponsorships from multinationals like Adidas, Nike, Heineken FedEx, Hankook, Turkish Airlines etc, is what made their sports competitive and attractive to the rest of the world.

The onetime lecturer, said in Germany for example, for over 70-years, Adidas, has partnered with the German Football Association (DFB) until recently, when it signed a new deal with Nike, starting in 2027.

He said, same is happening in the African continent, particularly in countries like Egypt, Morrocco, as well as neighboring Ivory Coast and Senegal, where their sports sector is largely being funded by the private sector.

Mr Osei Amankwa, has therefore, encouraged management of Nguvu Mining Limited, not to lose focus on the journey they have embarked on, but push harder against all odds to become a household name in terms of sports development in Ghana.

The company, has also been encouraged to spread its tentacles at its catchment areas through Corporate Social Responsibilities (CSR) activities of giving back to communities.
