mission & vision

Our Vision is a formalized, environmentally sound, and socially responsible Artisanal and Small Scale Gold Mining Sector that supplies Responsible Artisanal Gold to markets, attracts socially responsible investors and buyers, and encourages ethical consumer behaviours. 
A sector universally recognized as a first-rate mechanism of transfer of wealth to those who are challenged by poverty and marginalization.

We advise governments and industry on policy, solutions, national action plans, and institutional capacity for the transformation of the Artisanal Gold Mining Sector.
We mitigate health and environmental issues through education, improved processes, best practices and capacity building.
