About us

TWiMMI is a Non-profit, Women in Mining Association that groups together all aspects of women in mining and mineral industry in Tanzania. Since its inception in 2021, TWiMMI has successfully brought together women in mining both ASM (artisan & Small scale miners), MEM’s and SMEs into a single block with a single business-oriented set of interests. This achievement has resulted in TWiMMI becoming the fastest-growing women’s mining and mineral organization in the country, and the recognition of that accomplishment has motivated the support expected to bring women empowerment and transform the industry.
