From 2022 to 2023, LRMG has invested a staggering 6.92 billion Leones in CSR projects, covering areas such as education, sports, agriculture, infrastructure, health, youth, women, and more. This significant investment demonstrates LRMG’s dedication to uplifting the communities in which they operate.
In September 2023, LRMG continued their support for the local community by contributing NLe 20,000 to the Center for Disability Aids Advocacy Agricultural project.

Furthermore, LRMG showed its commitment to media and journalism by donating NLe 30,000 to the Sierra Leone Association of Journalists for their Annual General Meeting. This contribution not only supports the development and professionalism of journalists but also promotes a free and vibrant press, essential for a well-informed society.
Recognizing the importance of youth leadership and advocacy, LRMG also supported YACAP (Youth and Children Advocacy Panel) with NLe 40,000 for the implementation of their 6th Edition of the Sierra Leone National Youth Leadership Conference. This conference serves as a platform for young leaders to exchange ideas, develop skills, and contribute to shaping the future of Sierra Leone.
LRMG’s commitment to preserving Sierra Leone’s rich cultural heritage is evident through their support for the Bai Bureh Heritage Foundation for Service Delivery Awards 2023. LRMG contributed NLe 26,000 towards the implementation of the highly anticipated 6th Edition of the Bai Bureh Service Delivery Awards. This event recognizes and celebrates individuals and organizations that have made significant contributions to the betterment of Sierra Leone, aligning with the theme “Citizens Recognition for a Better Sierra Leone.”
LRMG’s commitment to CSR projects demonstrates their genuine concern for the welfare of Sierra Leoneans. By investing in education, sports, agriculture, infrastructure, health, and various other sectors, LRMG is laying the foundation for sustainable development and a brighter future for Sierra Leone.
As LRMG continues to prioritize social impact, Sierra Leoneans eagerly anticipate the company’s future endeavors. With their dedication to changing the narrative surrounding the mining industry, LRMG is proving that the private sector can genuinely contribute to the socio-economic development of the country.
In conclusion, Leone Rock Metal Group’s transformative approach to the mining industry is not only redefining the sector but also positively impacting the lives of Sierra Leoneans.
