With industry support from its 2022 NextGen Awards, Diamonds Do Good announced today $300,000 was granted to beneficiaries spanning diamond mining and manufacturing communities across three continents. 

Says Anna Martin, Diamonds Do Good’s President, “This is a testament to the unique role Diamonds Do Good serves the industry as the only grant giving organization solely representing natural diamond communities and telling these real stories of real impact to consumers”. 

Putting action behind the consumer confidence building message that Diamonds Do Good, the grants will support girls’ education, entrepreneurship, youth empowerment and higher education opportunities.

  • In Africa, grants are being given to support girls education in Tanzania via the Flaviana Matata Foundation and to empower youth afflicted with HIV through Sentebale in Botswana.
  • In the Northwest Territories of Canada, technical training scholarships for diamond industry jobs as well as entrepreneurship studies will be given to youth from indigenous communities through the Mine Training Society.
  • 2023 marks an expansion of the Diamonds Do Good Entrepreneurship Grants Program to India for projects related to the natural diamond and jewelry industry. Diamonds Do Good also continues to support higher education via Veerayatan, based in western Gujurat.

“These grants will help promote meaningful change for communities where natural diamonds are mined, cut, polished and sold and gives industry members a purpose-driven message to share with consumers” says Nancy Orem Lyman, Diamonds Do Good’s Executive Director”.

Diamonds Do Good will host its 2023 GOOD Awards on June 1 from 6-9pm at the Palazzo Ballroom, Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas. 

Diamonds Do Good was inspired in 2006 by Nelson Mandela to tell the world about the positive impact of diamonds in Southern Africa. Its focus today is to create meaningful change in diamond communities across the world and to tell these meaningful stories.
