On this International Women’s Day, the Council of African Youth in Minerals (CAYM) proudly celebrates the remarkable contributions of women in the mining industry. From ancient times to the modern era, women have played pivotal roles in shaping the mining sector, driving innovation, and advocating for positive change.

As we reflect on the history of women in mining, we are inspired by the trailblazers who paved the way for future generations. Women like Mary Anning, Lydia Osei, and Gloria Mamba have left an indelible mark on the industry, breaking barriers and challenging stereotypes along the way.

Today, we shine a spotlight on our exceptional members of our community: Mecktilder M. M Nyawira Muchangi Florence Anengbah . These remarkable women embody the spirit of resilience, determination, and leadership. Their passion for mining and their commitment to making a difference have not only propelled them forward in their careers but have also inspired others to follow in their footsteps.

On this special day, let us celebrate the achievements of women like Mectilder, Nya Wira & florence, who are driving positive change and shaping the future of the mining industry. Their contributions remind us of the invaluable role that women play in advancing innovation, sustainability, and social progress.

Join us in honoring the women of the past, celebrating the women of today, and empowering the women of tomorrow. Together, we can build a more inclusive and equitable world for all.

Happy International Women’s Day!
