The AMA supports organisations that promote socially responsible activities and education within the mining and minerals industry. In its role as representative of those within the industry the AMA supports best practices in sustainability and corporate social responsibility
Over the last two years the AMA has provided financial support to the Julian Baring Scholarship Fund. Established in 2000, the Julian Baring Scholarship Fund was created in the name of well-known gold fund manager, Julian Baring, in celebration of his two great passions – mining and Africa.
It has been the ambition of the trustees to create a fund which, with the support of the industry and those in it, would endow annual scholarships for talented, but financially disadvantaged, African students to continue their studies and pursue a career in the competitive mining industry. The Fund has come a long way in the eight years since inception thanks to the hard work and support of both trustees and friends.
Details of the Julian Baring scholarship's activities and ways that AMA members can support the fund are found on the organisation's website.
