$125 Miner Toolkits

According to World Bank and several other studies, 70-80% of all East African miners are artisanal, meaning they are mining on a small scale and without outside investment. Often, they use hand-me-down farming tools to do hard-rock mining, leaving them ill-equipped for safety and success. We want to equip them with the essential tools for self-protection and effectively reaching their goal: gemstones!

400 & counting Toolkits Funded

Gem Legacy is committed to ensuring each toolkit is delivered to a miner at the highest level of need in East Africa. We work with local, 3rd party partners on the ground to analyze and assess the mines which would receive the most benefit from an investment of tools and equipment. All mines receiving toolkits do not have any outside access to funding or financial support.
