Am a third born in my family, married to only one wife and together we have three children. I did not have enough information and awareness before the intervention. I knew of the intervention through the many seminars and workshops the NCCK have held in our locality.
The NCCK has in their various workshops have enlightened us on very many fields as far as mining is concerned. Education is power, this my life has taken a dramatic change as when I do my mining activities am more informed than before. I did my mining in a Jua kali way, but now though not professionally, but am better.
By holding local seminars to educate the rest of the miners so as to disseminate the information. To have stable and strong mining activities which will be prosperous. Challenges: Lack of good and appropriate equipment and the time taken to get to the gemstones.
Kudos, good work NCCK is doing, please keep up.
