PPA Announces New Grant
Jul 31, 2015
Upon recommendation by the Governance Committee and with approval from PPA Funders, RESOLVE has signed a grant agreement with Congolese NGO Save Act Mine. Effective July 31, 2015, the PPA will support four months of Save Act Mine’s operation of a telephone hotline to receive reports of suspected illicit trafficking of tin, tantalum, tungsten, and gold in North and South Kivu. Save Act Mine will conduct investigations to verify claims and will inform appropriate authorities. In addition, Save Act Mine will produce a graphic manual (akin to a comic book) on due diligence risks. The manual will be distributed to artisanal miners, traders, exporters, and other upstream actors.
Reports and other updates on this grant will be posted to the Save Act Mine project page.
