Stories from the Field - benefits of responsible mineral trade through the iTSCi programme (July 2017)
20 July 2017
The iTSCi Programme enables responsible 3T mineral production and trade across the Great Lakes region of central Africa and internationally. While our work was started as a response to conflict concerns and negative circumstances, promotion of trade can bring many benefits.
This month we are pleased to be able to provide a ‘Story from the field’ describing how iTSCi is implementing the WORTH for Miners project in the DRC aiming to improve miners’ incomes by training and strengthening literacy, numeracy, savings and financial skills through an engaging and appropriate curriculum, as well as another story on how local stakeholder committees found a solution to the challenges faced by SAESSCAM in Maniema through the implementation of an internship programme.
If you are interested in more information please visit www.itsci.org. We welcome your feedback and suggestions on how iTSCi can be improved.
