Challenge

It is no secret that mining areas are extremely poor and that women who are predominantly responsible for managing the daily lives of their households reflect the face of this poverty. Women's extreme poverty is dictated by multiple challenges that prevent them from equal accessing the opportunities associated with the growing demand for cobalt.

Solution

This project aims to improve the working conditions of women through technical and financial support based on leadership training, entrepreneurship and especially financial support based on the legalization of a cooperative to company for responsible cobalt mining. This will provide equal opportunities for women and men.

Long-Term Impact

At least 200 women from one or two predominantly female cooperatives are operating legally and decently in the mining chain and to responsible cobalt sourcing standards. 50 women members of artisanal cooperatives have access to kits, artisanal mining cards and required banking and technical facilities. Capacity building for at least 200 women on the concepts of savings and entrepreneurship and on the OECD and CGE responsible sourcing standards for labor, corruption and environmental protection.
