Women in Mining: Creating a WIM champion program for sustainable development
The mining industry in Africa is predominantly men activities. In Nigeria, it is believe to be the preserved job for men while women should focus on agriculture and other women’s related activities. Women have been involved in the mining sector through their mining activities at artisanal level. The issue remain their inability to access finance, proper training programs, mining equipment and new technologies, while this contributes to their inability to invest into their small mining activities in a sector dominated by men. The Women in Mining Nigeria are working closely with Chapters to ensure that gender mainstreaming in the mining sector is achieved.
