CBIS’ African Journey: Touching Lives with Active Ownership

In July, 2015, CBIS had the opportunity to join with other faith organizations from around the world and assess the sites of two of the largest mining companies in the world — Newmont Mining’s Ahafo gold mine in Ghana and Anglo American’s De Beers Venetia diamond mine in South Africa. These site visits allowed CBIS to see how corporate guidelines and programs are implemented at the local level. To learn more about our trip, and the positive impact it has had, please take a look at our new brief. Through ongoing participation, we gain a better understanding of how our efforts affect communities and individuals worldwide.
