Sustainable communities

The Solidaridad gold programme seeks to improve the livelihoods of artisanal and small-scale miners and communities around them. In order to achieve this, Solidaridad works with small-scale mines to improve environmental health and safety, human rights, business practices and women’s economic empowerment.

Technical support is provided to artisanal mining companies to adopt globally accepted standards (Fairmined certification). Through such initiatives, a Solidaridad partner mine, Dakete Small Scale Mining Company, is close to receiving its fair-mined certification.
