Our social investment programs in Suriname have been designed in collaboration with Staatsolie, the national oil company, to ensure alignment with government priorities and community needs. We have supported a range of projects from STEM education to protecting the coastal environment.

Pikin Slee is situated at the Suriname River about three hours upstream of Ayuni, where the road from Paramaribo ends.
