Uganda gold partnership won the Responsible Business Award

We are delighted that the Uganda Gold Partnership was selected for the Responsible Business Award 2019 in the category ‘Partnership of the Year’. This partnership is a joint collaboration between Fairphone, Hivos/Stop Child Labour, Fairtrade Foundation, Solidaridad, UNICEF, and Royal Philips to support a more responsible approach to gold sourcing. Stop Child Labour through local partners EWAD and Nascent RDO are implementing CLFZs around the arsenal small scale mining communities in Busia, Uganda.

The project was praised as follows: “A brave, determined and bold move forward to tackle a very challenging topic. An approach that many others could follow and, in turn, deliver sizable change.”
