Our mission is to unite rural communities, responsible private industry, the government and international organizations for financially sustainable conservation in Mozambique.
L4S works with rural communities in the Mutondo area of the Cheringoma district in Sofala Province, Mozambique. The place is also known as Catapú.
Our goal is to generate income with and for rural Mozambicans, to help them improve the lives of their families and communities and ensure a healthier way of life – while at the same time preserving the natural resources around them, stimulating biodiversity and creating a better environment for themselves, future generations and the local wild life.
That is the vision of the Life for Sofala Foundation (L4S) and what everyone involved works tirelessly to achieve. L4S focuses on reforestation and bee-keeping – involving local communities every step of the way to increase awareness, share knowledge and to ensure that any effort made to preserve the forest is firmly rooted in the communities to ensure sustainability.
On this site, you will find information about Life4 Sofala’s activities – which are closely linked to those of its Mozambican counterpart Pro Sofala Verde (PSV) and our on site service provider, TCT Dalmann. The Living Forest Endeavour for Sofala Project won the 2014 SEED Initiative Africa Award.
L4S and PSV work with private donations, corporate sponsors and grass roots fundraising wherever possible. If you want to donate trees or if you are a corporation interested in collaborating, please go to the donation page and read more about how to do that or contact Celesta@life4sofala.org.
