Mineworkers Development Agency (MDA)

The mission of the Mineworkers Development Agency is to create brighter futures and it measures progress by the number of new livelihoods it creates in areas of endemic poverty. MDA projects build self-reliance and assure food security. To maximise the impact of various interventions, the agency typically works in tandem with corporate CSI programmes, NGOs and foreign donors. Initiatives range from educational work to create access to social grants for the very poor, permaculture gardening and community gardens for improved food security, targeted help for emerging farmers, assistance for micro-enterprises, capacity building among community organisations, TB testing and community level healthcare. Programmes are not restricted to South Africa. The MDA is also active in Lesotho and Swaziland.
