Our purpose-built solar stills can produce over 20 litres of fresh water per day, per still utilising seawater or grey water. We use these stills to ensure freshwater on Ilha do Fogo, however, funding is required to develop more solar stills for the coastal communities, providing fresh drinking water for families in the area.
Pebane had a disused airfield that has fallen to ruins due to lack of funding. To ensure the progress of Fire Island Conservation projects, a useable airfield is crucial.
The turtle monitors ensure the protection of nesting turtles on Ilha do Fogo, keeping an eye on the nests until the hatchlings emerge. The project aims to identify individuals from the local community who show an aptitude for turtle and marine protection and fund their formal training with Maputo National Park.
Turtles are seen by locals as a source of protein. Through our efforts to understand the residents’ harvesting of turtles, we realised that to protect wildlife, communities need alternative means of sustenance. Tilapia fish farms can provide locals with a reliable source of nutritional fish and an opportunity to sell fish at local markets, creating revenue for families.
The goal of this project is to offer local communities an alternative means to taking vulnerable marine life. Apprentices will be trained in every aspect of the ceramic process, from identifying and mining local materials, to processing and creating functional works of art. We aim to teach locals a whole range of industry skills, extending to supply chain management, sales and marketing.
Alongside our FSC-registered partners, LevasFlor, our goal for the project is to create a facility that can process responsibly harvested wood and train locals in carpentry skills. Apprentices will be identified from the communities and we will sell or export manufactured products, keeping the profits in Mozambique, to the benefit of the local population.
