Gold is beautiful and all around you. But did you know that a almost all gold mining is detrimental to humans and the environment? Miners work under the most severe and unsafe labor conditions. Their production is limited and the price they receive is usually far below the international market price. 


Solidaridad sees big potential for working on poverty alleviation in the artisanal mining sector. This sector employs over 11 million people, mostly in the least developed countries.
