1. Agroforestry training center 2021 -2022.

In March 2021 we started in Mozambique in a reet hut. In June- July 2021 we build a garage for equipment that we collected for the Agroforestry training. End of 2021 we started a donation campaign for building two ablution blocks and a house for the female students. Thanks to the support we finished this in March 2022.



In July 2021 we made a beginning to regenerate the poor sandy soil.

Next pictures shows you the differents within a year (July 2021 – June 2022)

We have Avelino and Roger full time in Training. This is the beginning. The concept is a growing model. Avelino is ready to start his farm end of the year in Milange at the border of Malawi. With Roger we organised land next door to our project area.  His parents taught him a lot about indigenous trees. 

In March 2022 we had our first insight internship with Teodmiro from Cabo Delgado. He studies at ISET and is interested in the ecology of Mozambique. Those are the young people we love to support. 


2. Bee keeping (we will update this project at the start of 2023)


  • We made six top-bar bee-hives with carpenter David. In the hive we need a special gauze that separates the queen and the breed  from the honey-chamber. With hives the people don’t have to pull the honey out of the forest. We want to finish all the hives and put them in the forest.
  • Goal: We can create a small business by harvesting the honey without damaging
  • the bee population. Those hives are also suitable to put around the ‘machambas’ local vegetable gardens.
  • Elephants are afraid of bees. A bee-fence is the solution:



3. Fish Farming 2018

  • Chief Mahlanga is leading an area with 50 families situated directly under Maputo Elephant Park.  The chief is organizing meetings with his people and makes decisions about fishing in the lakes. He has a wish: Fish farming. With the trip we wanted to achieve that we learned more about fish farming and that we got a realistic idea about how to start a project. We visited ‘Peixe Bella Vista’ a big Fish farming company and community project at the Rio Maputo. The project is on hold by lack of finance.
  • Goal: An activity with Fish farming will reduce poaching/ hunting and over-fishing.

4. First trial Agroforestry 2017

Agroforestry with elements of  Syntropic farming can create an earning-model for local people.

February 2016:  we started to talk with people in Mozambique about this.

March and April 2017:  with the help of ladies from Zitundo we implemented one kilometer of beds with vegetables, fruit trees and trees for timber. This was done in six weeks using the technique of Agroforestry and elements of  ‘Syntropic farming‘.



From March 2017 we lined out area with 8 tree-lines and 24 crop-lines (1/4 of a ha):

Four month later (August 2017)


Februari 2018:

Broken drip irrigation and little maintenance made the plot not the best example, but it is still easy to move forward because the outline is intact and the soil has better quality.


ISET/OWU One World Educational Institute

When we were convinced that we understood how to plant in Mozambique, we  informed our contacts at ISET – One World. We went to Changalane where they are located and they allowed us to work with the people in their garden. After a few days they gave us the opportunity to prepare a lesson and we gave a lecture to the students.

Making beds at ISET – One World  Educational Institute  (March 2017):

End of May 2017 they send us a picture of the beds filled with beans and vegetables: Trymore Sebastiao
