A journey of adventure, discovery, and
legacy building in Mozambique in 2020.

Mozambique 2020 Legacy Expedition

Lightyear Leadership Global Shareback | September 26- October 5th, 2020

We have a future to craft together.

In September 2020, Legado is joining forces with Lightyear Leadership to bring 10 leaders to
Mount Namuli in Mozambique for a
once-in-a-lifetime journey
to the heart of our world’s most endangered mountain ecosystems.


The trip will include hiking, sharing with local communities on Mount Namuli, having an audience with the Queen of Namuli, and exploring a side of Mozambique rarely experienced. Our 10-day journey will culminate in three days of Lightyear leadership training with the communities around Mount Namuli.

Two years ago, Legado and Lightyear brought together over 90 people from across Namuli, Mozambique, and the world— from Nicau, Namuli’s northern outpost to Los Angeles, from a Canadian running for political office in Vancouver to a Lomwe Queen, from a government official living in a coastal capital to a cassava farmer making her living on the slopes of a mountain. And together we created goals and visions for orphanages, forests, education, chickens and fields — thriving futures for all.


In 2020 we’re doing it again.
And we want you to be a part of it

Why Legacy?


Legado’s goal is to create thriving futures for Sky Island people and biodiversity. And we believe this goal is possible when everyone we work with can articulate, believe, and act upon their personal and collective legacies (Legado means “legacy” in Portuguese).

To achieve this goal, Legado has partnered with Lightyear Leadership since 2015. Lightyear is a program which teaches a self-leadership method that helps people cultivate the best in themselves, while transforming their communities.

“My experience traveling to Mt. Namuli and working with Legado was exceptional. The participants in our 3-day workshop, founded in the curriculum of Lightyear Leadership, ranged from community members, to agricultural specialists, to Ministry Officials. This area of the planet is more beautiful than anywhere I’ve traveled and I’d be thrilled for another opportunity to walk under the open sky of Mozambique. Majka’s style of leadership includes self-discovery, autonomy, and movement. I came away from my trip to Mt Namuli a transformed person and more able to be in service of my own community.“ – Christine Bachman

Fundraising and Investment FAQ


Each trip participant will commit to an tax-receiptable investment of $10,000 USD to meet our collective goal of $100,000 to expand the scope and reach of Legado’s legacy leadership work in Mozambique.
