Right To Play, a global organization that uses the transformative power of play to educate and empower children facing adversity, found many parallels with Inmet Mining's Community Development priorities.

Through comprehensive training workshops, Right To Play will begin working with Inmet's subsidiary Minera Panama, its employees and their community stakeholders to implement sport and play based activities to complement and enhance the company's existing development programs.
Right To Play's CEO and Founder, Johann Olav Koss remarks: "Right To Play is excited to work with Inmet, a leader for Corporate Responsibility, to extend the reach of Right To Play programs. With Inmet's support, we can continue to give more children the opportunity to participate in sport and play activities and create change within communities around the world."
