Summary

We aim to achieve the development of self-sustaining mangrove planting and exploitation activities carried out by our young students and their families. This will enable the restore of the ecosystem, allowing the development of other activities and projects connected to it, being part of a network of projects aiming for the development of the locality of Barada and helping to improve the living conditions of its populations. It will also help to reduce the impacts from sea erosion and silting.

Challenge

The populations in Barada (Nova Sofala) so far have lived mainly from fisheries. Esmabama intends to give multiple self-sustaining alternatives to this same population. So that both students and communities of Barada (Nova Sofala) may have more alternatives regarding their economic survival and benefits. The coastal line is also under continuous threat due to the Indian Ocean rapid advance inland.

Solution

In partnership with Mezimbite, we already have a Self-sustainable Project, which we have implemented in Barada regarding the replanting and processing of coconut wood. We hope to do the same with this Mangrove planting activity. To raise awareness and actively reduce the impact of coastal erosion, as well as to provide to the communities living there, other means of subsistence.

Long-Term Impact

The project will educate 1,045 male students and 1,070 female students, for a total number of about 1,600 families. We have at Barada a Parents and Guardians Association also functioning to support agricultural activities. This will allow to inclusive educate in equal terms all the students as a whole. Raising awareness regarding gender equality, ecosystem protection and giving a whole new set of economic activities to be reached by the members of the community.
