Youth in Minerals and Resources Foundation
(YiM Foundation NPC)
YiM Foundation NPC is a reservoir of information for young people about the mining industry. We seek to create a platform where young people – mining industry – and government can engage and create relationships that will foster meaningful involvement of youth in the mining industry.
YiM Foundation is based on 3(three) objectives:
Advocacy – our mandate and objective is to foster youth participation in the mining industry by fostering programs and advocating for holistic transformation specifically through 7 of the 9 pillars of the Mining Charter, namely:
- Human Resource Development
- Employment Equity
- Mine Community Development
- Consulting, Monitoring, Evaluation and Reporting
- Ownership & Joint Ventures
Research – we seek to achieve the advocacy of the pillars through research and campaigns where we make the foundation a source (reservoir) of information about the mining industry in relation to youth. We are searching and researching new and innovative ways to add value to the industry while also attaining shared value for all stakeholders.
Projects/Campaigns – these Projects and Campaigns are created and aligned with the core objective, which is fostering holistic transformation through 7 of the 9 pillars of the Mining Charter.
