Promoting Gender Inclusivity in the Small Scale Mining Sector
Solidaridad in partnership with Simavi and Healthy Entrepreneurs is currently implementing The Golden Line Programme in Ghana and Tanzania to help address some of the challenges faced by women in the small-scale mining sector. The 5-year programme (2016-2020) aims to economically empower women living in and around small-scale gold mining communities. The programme seeks to provide women with increased opportunities to engage in economic activities and to enjoy fair and economic working conditions, as this will enhance their status and self determination to make decisions about their life, work and health. Three key challenges have been identified during programme implementation.
Despite these challenges, the few women who have successfully ventured into the sector as mine owners or workers have demonstrated the potential for substantial economic gain. This two year (2019-2020) project is undertaking various interrelated activities that would empower more women to actively engage in the sector, leading to more economic and cultural inclusiveness in gold mining communities. It will enable 150 additional women to receive training to improve their skills and knowledge; to create Village Savings and Loan schemes; and to connect with financial institutions to increase the opportunity to access credit to start or improve their businesses within and around the mines. The overall goal of this project is to enhance women’s visibility, autonomy, economic independence and effectiveness in small scale mining in Ghana.
