PRESS RELEASE on Moyo Gems to expanding to Kenya!
Taita Taveta County Government attracts the international responsible sourcing program that is transforming the way gems are bought and sold worldwide.
… “As AWEIK we are delighted to be an implementing partner of the Moyo Gems Program in Kenya. The
Mine To Market approach of the program will ensure that low, medium and high value gemstones are
traded and that majority of the beneficiaries, who are women, will economically benefit. The program
couldn’t have come at a better time, because since the COVID 19 pandemic in early 2020, many
gemstones miners have struggled with accessing markets due to impeded travel by buyers and sellers.
Further, this is a program that guarantees ethically sourced gemstones from Kenya to the end
international buyers.” says Ms. Hannah Wang’ombe, CEO of AWEIK.
