In June of 2018, Legado’s Executive Director, Majka Burhardt, was named as one of Mulago’s Henry Arnhold Fellows– a group of “standout leaders focused on scalable solutions in conservation and climate.”
Mulago is providing Legado critical funds and tools to scale our work from Mount Namuli to four other mountains by 2021. We’re grateful for their support of our work protecting mountain ecosystems and the downstream impact on millions each ecosystem has.
From Mulago: “For the last 15 years, our Rainer Arnhold Fellows program has been focused on social entrepreneurs with scalable solutions to poverty. Through that work we’ve come to see that A) development efforts to help the poor will ultimately fail if we continue to erode the ecological underpinnings of prosperity, and B) the social entrepreneurship movement needs to penetrate more deeply into conservation. Conservation and development are two halves of a prosperous future.
The core idea of our new Henry Arnhold Fellows program is that instead of a project-by-project (or battle-by-battle) approach, conservation needs a growing array of scalable solutions that can be applied in the places where they are most likely to work.
The best way to tell you what we mean by that is to tell you what they do. Here are our 2018 Henry Arnhold Fellows:
This is the future; these are the organizations to watch. Support them. Fund them. There’s no time to wait.”
We’re honored to have Mulago’s support!
