In 2015 we embarked on several field trips to visit projects and communities who experience similar challenges to the communities we work with.

 

This was a huge success and we would like to further link Mambanje Community members with people and groups from other communities that are successfully implementing various community development initiatives. Learning’s from the various trips which will vary from day trips to three day trips will include issues on conservation, sustainable agriculture methods in wildlife conflict areas and income generation.
