TMB proud to sponsor events right across the Congo
4.05.2016, Lubumbashi, DRC – TMB is strongly committed to the idea that companies have a vital role to play in strengthening civil society. For that reason TMB is happy to support various civil society initiatives including in the areas of art, education, sport, ecology, and health care. TMB is proud to support events right across the Congo.
Our commitment to investing in our community emphasises partnering with those who in particular are focused on the long-term well-being of the population, who prioritise in acting in rural areas of the country, and who are committed to offer activities and socially sustainable solutions to the challenges and questions of the day.
Sport plays a very important role in promoting community relations, team work, and hard work, and TMB is delighted to be able to support a number of sporting events in April, including:
Basketball in Butembo
TMB sponsored the inter-university basketball championship in Butembo. The championship ran from Friday March 18 to Wednesday April 20 at the ITAV Stadium.
The championship final was won by the Adventist University of Lukanga, beating the Emmanuel d’Alzon Institute of Higher Education of Butembo.
Our staff were present each of the eight days of the championship and offered gifts to the referees, to the committee and attending guests.
TMB presented prizes to the winning team and the runner-up. We also awarded prizes in the individual awards categories of the Best Championship Player, Swivel, Leader and Ally.
