About the projects
Soil is a limited resource. It is a constant competition for land, it creates conflicts and forcing people to leave their homes all over the world. The right to land is a fundamental factor for survival, both rural and for the urban poor. Equal land rights is therefore an urgent issue and we think that it should be seen as fundamental to sustainable economic growth and poverty reduction.
Based on the fact that women often lose land in connection with that she loses the man she lives with conducting MUD Africa in collaboration with a local organization called LUPPEN (Lilongwe Urban Poor People’s Network) courses on equal land rights. By increasing awareness of their rights, among both men and women, while focusing on the practical approach of how to register land and draw up a will, strengthen the conditions for Lilongwe residents to also use their rights.
Our common goal with our partner organization is to increase knowledge for women and men in human rights, with a focus on land rights. The entire residential area is involved in the process, and together we work to achieve our common goals.
