This week, Pact and Qualcomm Incorporated expand our collaboration to tackle critical issues facing mining communities in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The additional support from Qualcomm will bolster efforts to address child labor in mining, building on the existing Watoto Inje ya Mungoti (Children Out of Mining) project, which works in and around Manono town in the southeastern region of Katanga.

The project has been working in Katanga for the past two years to address the complex issue of child labor in tin, tantalum and tungsten mines, utilizing interventions that are deeply rooted in communities and local institutions and are applicable across many types of mines – tin, tantalum, cobalt, copper, gold – and in other geographic areas.
