The iTSCi Programme enables responsible 3T mineral production and trade across the Great Lakes region of Africa. While our work was started as a response to conflict concerns and negative circumstances, promotion of trade brings many other benefits. We are pleased to be able to send you the first in a new series of ‘stories from the field’ to show how iTSCi works as well as to highlight the benefits of iTSCi to local communities.

This month we have a range of stories describing infrastructure improvements, security training and the value of formalised mineral trade to communities and individuals in the DRC, Rwanda and Uganda.
