Both through our company-led efforts as well as through our private consulting work, we assist gemstone and precious metals projects in countries like Kenya, Malawi, the Democratic Republic of Congo and throughout South Asia. We have helped to establish and support responsible mining efforts that protect the environment while offering opportunities to help build schools, supply water and electric, and to create educational opportunities that work to eliminate the worst forms of child labor by allow children to be in school rather than in mines or sweatshop-like cutting factories.

We believe working directly with local communities is one of the best ways to assure their needs and concerns are addressed. Whether through direct support of a mine or through the creation of a microfinance effort to offer economic opportunities to small business entrepreneurs, by helping these groups secure their rightful place in the supply chain and offering a chance to chart their own futures, we are doing what we can to address the root problems of poverty.
