GEORGIA DELIVERS A BOOST FOR BIODIVERSITY
Unocal supports school construction in Goranboy
Unocal, a BTC Co shareholder, is investing $15,000 in a school construction project in Eyvazlilar, a community in the Goranboy District in Azerbaijan. Eyvazlilar lies close to the BTC pipeline route and currently has no school building. For schooling, children have to go to the neighboring village which 2.5 km far away.
The project is an addition to the community investment programme (CIP) for the BTC and South Caucasus Pipeline projects and will be completed in April. Members of the village are contributing labour, construction material and equipment to the project, which they identified themselves as a priority need for the community. Save the Children, one of the implementing partners for the CIP in Azerbaijan, are helping the community to implement the project.
