​Agriculture for the younger population

Barrick (Niugini) Limited (BNL), in its efforts to continue promoting food security within the mine communities, has introduced Agrikids, which is coordinated by its community development section.

Agrikids is a component of BNL’s Food Security Program initiated in 2010, which aims to prepare local communities to sustain their livelihood after mine closure, through agriculture.

On 29 August, the community development section conducted training on compost with students of the Aumbi Elementary School, a pilot school for the Agrikids program.
