What is the National Network of Women in Mining (NNWM)?
The National Network of Women in Mining is a movement of women involved in the mining activity in Bolivia, created to bring them together and secure their recognition across the nation. It also aims to raise awareness of their demands, progress, suggestions, and knowledge to develop sustainable actions.
The network's primary goal is to bring together and consolidate our recognition as the women involved in the small mining industry of Bolivia. Also, to raise awareness of their demands and suggestions, progress, and knowledge to develop sustainable actions.
