The goal of Future Forest Malawi is to restore and conserve the different ecosystems in Ntchisi Forest Reserve. The main focus is on the vulnerable patch of afromontane evergreen rainforest surrounding the summit of the mountain, the inner part of the Reserve. Together with the local communities, we work on protection of the Reserve. This project generates a new type of income for the people living in the villages surrounding the forest, for example by taking part in patrols, and strives to make them less dependent on the forest. By working together via nature restoration, protection and education projects we aim to raise awareness about the long-term value of the forest. And consequently, that forest conservation will be essential to guarantee supply of water, harvest of fruits and mushrooms and supply of dead wood, also for future generations.
