While our mines generate significant economic activity in local towns, we’re also investing in community programs that have far-reaching economic benefits.
For several years now, Endeavour has offered and funded free skills training programs for people in and around the communities where we operate. The purpose is to help residents gain valuable new trade skills, which can help people secure a job, start or expand a business, or give them an alternative source of income.
In 2021, we hosted six trade-skill workshops in Bolañitos and Guanaceví, each led by a professional trainer. The sessions, which attracted 116 community participants, included make-up and hair styling, esthetics/nail care, baking, basic construction, elementary mechanics and waste management.
Maria de Jesús García Rivera, who lives in Guanaceví and is a bread supplier for Endeavour’s cafeteria services, recently participated in a baking workshop: “I registered in the course as I am always interested in discovering new and better products. Through the workshop I learned to make different types of bread (Baguette, hamburger bread and French bread) that I didn’t have in my catalogue of products. This workshop has allowed me to add more variety to Endeavour and my other clients.”
Endeavour is pleased to continue delivering the workshops, which contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal #4 – Quality Education.
