Manda Wilderness Community Trust

Charity description

Manda Wilderness Community Trust logo
The Manda Wilderness Community Trust, founded in 2005, connects some of the least supported communities in an isolated corner of Mozambique to engage in sustainable development projects; supports community events that provide training and foster unity in the region; and leads conservation in one of Africa’s last true wildernesses, working at the pace of local communities and encouraging active community involvement with the goal of improving their today and giving hope for their tomorrow.

The Manda Wilderness Community Trust was founded as a part of the Manda Wilderness Project, an innovative venture inspired in the wake of a brutal civil war in a forgotten corner of northern Mozambique. The Manda Wilderness Project combines responsible tourism, grassroots practical help for the war-weary people of Mozambique and a last chance to protect a pristine corner of real Africa. It aims to support conservation and community development through the engines of a successful tourist lodge (Nkwichi Lodge) and a UK-based charity (The Manda Wilderness Community Trust).

As the first tourism development in a region of extreme poverty, the Project was created to address the needs of the local Nyanja people. It aims to:
-Put control of one of Africa’s last true wildernesses into local hands
-Improve local livelihoods through employment, trade and business mentorship
-Develop local villager's skills to the point the Project can be handed over to them
