MUD Africa – Mobilizing and Uniting Development Africa

MUD Africa started in the fall of 2011 to strengthen the rights of poor households. To focus on equal land rights was something that was worked out together with the partner organization LUPPEN. Since spring 2012, we are continuously working on location in Lilongwe.

Local anchoring is a prerequisite for all our work. Everything we do, we focus on the residents of Lilongwe residential areas and their priorities and solutions they come up with. This is how we manage to grow and work long-term.

Since spring 2014, MUD Africa has been reviewed and approved by Forum Syd, which is the organization that has the mission to distribute tax revenues as aid money for civil society. It means that SIDA will multiply our fundraising with nine.

We are

An advocate for land rights and women’s rights. We are a nonprofit, apolitical organization that has been active since 2011 with headquarters in Gothenburg, currently acting in Lilongwe and Mchinji, Malawi.

We want to

Continue to improve the living conditions of poor households by promoting equal land rights.

We will

Reach out to more people, continue to educate women and men and get more people to register their land, so we can increase the possibility of gender equality and livelihood.

We have

With small resources educated women and men in Lilongwe about their right to own land, which led to more registered land owners and the creation of a more secure future for their families.
