The Mineworkers Development Agency (MDA), is a Non-governmental organization, registered as a Section 21 company. We are the brainchild of the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM). The MDA started off as a project of the NUM, in 1987, following the nationwide strike that led to mass retrenchments of mineworkers. It was ultimately registered as an entity with its own board in 1995. To date, the organization’s interventions has touched the lives of over a million people.
