Meet two women artisanal gold miners who will share their experience and how they are changing the narrative on Congo & conflict minerals—to one centered on peace, development, and women’s economic empowerment.
Kahambu Vaherenie and Moza Zawadi are artisanal gold miners and women leaders in a remote community in Congo’s northeastern Ituri Province. They will share their first-hand experience as women gold miners and how they’re paving the way for increased gender equality and women’s rights in Congo.
