At Dikulushi, the early success of the project meant that Societe Miniere de Tanganyika S.a.r.l was able to invest in schools, water supplies, hospital improvements, health care, recreational facilities, road bridges, and other community infrastructure soon after the start of production.

The long-term aim of the program is to create sustainable diverse communities capable of continued economic development independent of mining. Societe Miniere de Tanganyika S.a.r.l has so far invested more than $18 million in projects identified as priorities by community representatives.
