EarthLore, formerly Mupo Foundation, was formed in 2007 when communities were identified in South Africa who were concerned about the increasing loss of their indigenous knowledge and practices, especially amongst young people. They were also concerned about the violation of their sacred natural sites and the associated ceremonies, rituals and practices, which they believed was leading to the breakdown of the community and the degradation of the environment.
ABN accompanies Africans in voicing their views on issues such as food and seed sovereignty, genetic engineering, agrofuels, biodiversity protection, extractive industries and the rights of small-holder farmers. We focus on indigenous knowledge, ecological agriculture and biodiversity related rights, policy and legislation. We pioneer culturally-centred approaches to social and ecological problems in Africa through sharing experiences, co-developing methodologies and creating a united African voice on the continent on these issues.
