09Jul Moyo Gemstones - how it all began
We are privileged to be part of the Moyo Gems project, a ground-breaking programme, working with the members of the Tanzanian Women Miners' Association (TAWOMA) in Tanga, Tanzania.
This potentially life-changing project has been described by our commercial partner, Monica Stephenson of Anza Gems:
"This could be a way out of poverty for these women and their children, through a natural resource they can harness. We can help bridge the gap of knowledge to help them mine better, safer and more productively, and give them a fair market value for their gems. And we can help them tell their stories and bring their beautiful gems to light."
