GEM SLAVES—TANZAnite's

child labour

 

Wrote, produced and directed a documentary for IRIN News, and later BBC Reports, "Gem Slaves", about child mining in Tanzania

Mererani in Northern Tanzania is the only place on earth where the precious stone tanzanite is mined. Every day thousands of children risk their lives in poorly constructed mine shafts for barely a meal a day. Despite efforts to curb this deadly practice, the global thirst for tanzanite continues to drive these children underground. The film has aired globally on BBC Reports and OneWorldTV and raised awareness and resources to fight the problem of child labour in Tanzania
