Banro Corporation is committed to developing and nurturing long-term and supportive relations with the communities at its operations. Relationships with communities encompass a broad range of responsibilities that include ongoing consultation, the creation of jobs locally, the fostering of alternative and sustainable livelihoods, the voluntary resettlement of households and long-term community investment as determined by Memorandums of Understanding with communities. The relationship with and the repositioning of artisanal miners in more sustainable activities also represents a significant responsibility.
