Established in 2004, the Gold Fields Ghana Foundation has invested over US$100m in development projects and programmes in host communities of our Tarkwa and Damang mines in the Western Region of Ghana.

The Gold Fields Ghana Foundation is the first foundation to be set up by a mining company in the country.
