Our vision, our mission, our goals

Our vision: A market-based, science-smart model capable of improving rural livelihoods and restoring degraded landscapes through the adoption of sustainable, low-carbon agricultural practices and more effective community leadership with the potential of being replicated across multiple landscapes in southern Africa. Our mission: Over 200,000 small-scale farming families organized into 67 cooperatives united with the vision, the capacity and the markets to restore and sustainably manage the Luangwa Valley ecosystem.

Our Goals are:

  • Reduce Hunger and Poverty through higher-yielding farming practices tied to better management of soils and market benefits
  • Restore and Protect Ecosystems & Wildlife through improved community leadership and market incentives linked to conservation compliance standards
