Epicentre Water for Life Project



Businesses are powerful constituents of society and the most successful, respected, and desirable businesses exist to do much more than make money; they exist to use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems.

IPMC believes corporate social responsibility (CSR) is a critical mission that is at the heart of everything that it does, how it thinks and what it is. The CSR approach adopted envisages that the group evolves and executes strategies to support communities in partnership with governments, civil society and relevant stakeholders.

IPMC’s initiative to provide easy access to portable drinking water in deprived communities continues, location is The Epicentre school and over 500 residents situated in New Gbawe, a small town in Ga South District in the Greater Accra Region, located approximately 26 kilometres from the nearest paved road.

The Epicentre is an educational and rehabilitative centre located in New Gbawe. They provide special education to children and young adults with developmental disabilities and offer an inclusive early learning program and physical therapy unit for all abilities.

When Epicentre school approached IPMC, the aid was initiated to overcome the hardships of residents & school who had to walk long distances to get the water for drinking, washing and cooking. Due to lack of safe drinking water they even faced risk of water-borne diseases.

During the commissioning, the CEO of IPMC, Mr.Amar Deep S. Hari, said IPMC was worried about the source of drinking water in the community, hence the construction of the borehole and placing an over-head tank to store water was an immediate solution. He added “To ensure project sustainability, he urged the school and residents to form a water point committee for maintenance of the borehole and promote good hygiene practices.

He also said, IPMC is committed to fostering improved living standards in the communities where it operates, adding that: “We want to embark on social interventions that transform the lives of people.”

An appreciation from Epicentre “We wish to express our profound gratitude to your establishment for donating a borehole and a polytank to the school” Madam Joyce Ankrah said

She said “The services you rendered to the Epicentre are worth appreciating and praiseworthy and have contributed immensely to solving our challenge with water. We at the Epicentre adore your work towards us and this kind gesture will forever remain in our heart”.

Any community which is in dire need of a borehole or other persons who wish to participate with us in any form should please write to csr@ipmcghana.com.

This year’s Breakfast meeting, was graced by two powerful women ; Lisa Opoku, one of the top black women in global finance and Chief Operating Officer of the Technology Division and Global Strategist for Goldman Sachs and Alipt Sanam Hari, a Wellness Therapist and a prolific motivational speaker.

During Lisa Opoku’s presentation, she encouraged the business executives to develop positive attitudes, follow their passion, become risk-friendly and think out of the box, in order to make ground-breaking improvement to their industries. She expressed her displeasure on the highly informal operating system of most African economies for the relatively meagre investments by multinational corporations on the continent. She further mentioned that it’s expensive for businesses to sustain investment channelled into economies and turnaround the fortunes of emerging economies such as Ghana.

“It is very difficult for investors because you need to identify people, track record, for instance in the banking industry, it is difficult to track debtors; non-existing restricting laws and the absence of formal bankruptcy process which in other countries are very secure like,” she stated.

Mrs. Alipt Sanam Hari, a prolific motivational speaker, addressed the executives at the 18th MTN Business World Executive Breakfast Meeting, by catching everyone’s attention with an illusion trick to drive home the point that the mind's power lies in its capacity to become aware of one's negative cognitive beliefs and then making a conscious effort to change them. Coming from a sporting background, she spoke on how we can inculcate the qualities of sportspersons and become 'winners' in life, both personally and professionally.

Sanam Hari, Managing Director of IPMC, said he was happy that the breakfast meeting provided an avenue for executive briefings, networking and a matching platform for senior management professionals, entrepreneurs and government officials to meet and discuss current business trends and opportunities in Ghana.

IPMC donates towards Farmers' Day



Mr. Amar Deep S. Hari, Chief Executive Officer of IPMC, on Wednesday presented a cheque of GH¢10,000 to the Ministry of Food and Agriculture, towards the celebration of this year’s Farmers' Day, which will take place in the Upper East Regional capital, Bolgatanga.

The day will be on the theme: "Transforming Ghana, Invest in Agriculture."

Mr. Amar expressed IPMC’s preparedness to help in the growth of the sector, because it was only when there is food that people could do business.

He said most developed economies and economic giants in the world had risen to their present level because they paid attention to the development, enhancement and growth of agriculture, adding, through agriculture the country could get foreign exchange to boost the economy.

Mr.Amar assured the Minster of IPMC’s continuous support in future celebrations because hardworking farmers deserved to be rewarded.

Dr Mohammed Alhassan Ahmed, Deputy Minister of Food and Agriculture in charge of Crops, expressed appreciation to IPMC, saying the company had over the years been part of contributors to enable the Ministry successfully celebrate the day.

He said the Ministry was targeting over six million Ghana cedis for its budget for the celebration, and urged other corporate bodies to emulate the example of IPMC so that the nation could give recognition to its gallant farmers.

He said the cost of the day had to be borne by all because if government was making efforts to transform the economy, the agriculture sector must be seriously catered for.

He urged the investment community to invest in Agriculture through the value chain, so that businesses that depended on agriculture would continue to obtain raw materials.

It was a celebration of sport for less-privileged children. For many of them, it was also their first time to associate themselves with different class of people.

Eight (8) children homes participated in the games. Nungua Orphanage was branded by IPMC, Grandma Alice by 360, SOS by UTV, Jay Nii orphanage by Gold Label Africa Outreach, Cocoa House by Livefm, Love orphanage by Lizzy complex, Safe Heaven by Nyonyo Salad and Power of love by Live on Campus.
