Our Community

Allan Schwarz, together with the community, have helped restore the native forests in Mezimbite and grow jobs.

Mezimbite Forest Centre is located at EN6 Km 50 Northwest of Dondo (population 80,000) and Southwest of Mafambisse where the sugar company Acucareira de Mocambique is located. Mezimbite is situated in what was once the heart of the Miombo BiomeĀ  – a broad stretch of tropical and subtropical forest and shrub land that is important to the livelihoods of many rural people. We work on restoring this once lush forest and creating job opportunities for our community from timber and non-timber products (e.g., honey, natural oils) and promoting through our various brands.
