Turning Challenges into Opportunity — Namuli Work Continues

We are honored to share with you that Legado’s work on our flagship site on Mount Namuli has been able to continue, and even grow, inside of the global COVID-19 pandemic.

During the COVID-19 State of Emergency in Mozambique, we have carefully continued to work with the Namuli communities. Whether in-person as appropriate, or distanced as needed, our field team has been able to provide support across all areas of our work— including land tenure, agricultural and apiculture programming, and our work building personal legacies that support a thriving future.

By finding new and creative ways to connect and organize, we have also created a collaboration with the local government to increase health support for the Namuli communities as they face COVID-19.  As part of this initiative (pictured below) we are currently coordinating with the District Health Directorate to recruit and train community health activists that will provide Namuli’s communities with the information they need to stay safe during this time and prevent the spread of COVID-19.

The challenges of the past months have brought our team closer together and made us stronger. We are working hard to continue to learn how best to support the Namuli communities, each other, and the communities of our future sites, as we adapt and innovate in the face of change.

Thank you for standing with us during this time.
