We want to applaud Anglo American Platinum for making public their CSI report as it has sparked some really thoughtful debate over the shortcomings of well-meaning social investment programmes. Amplats invested over R100 million in education initiatives for mining communities but the results of an external impact assessment show that, for a myriad of reasons, this huge investment made little to no positive impact at all.   Read More...
