First kilo of Fairtrade gold sold by SAMA

First kilo of Fairtrade gold sold by SAMA 

SAMA is the first Ugandan mining cooperative on African soil to be awarded the Fairtrade certification for its gold. One year later, this organisation achieved a major milestone by selling their first kilo of fair trade gold to the UK.

SAMA received financial support from TDC to improve the management of the organisation, to develop more sustainable production techniques (extracting gold without the use of mercury) and to facilitate access to the international market (marketing coaching), which is now starting to pay off.
