MICAIA Foundation is a Mozambican non-profit organisation(NGO) that works mostly in Manica Province in the heart of Mozambique. Set up in 2009, we now reach more than 40,000 people and their families and communities. Our support is focused on enabling people to take action to change their lives for the better. Training farmers and supporting their organisations for example, helps them get a better price for their crops – which means they can buy more seed for next year or improve their house or keep their children in school for longer.


MICAIA Foundation works on all four of the ‘Pillars of Local Prosperity’. We take a long-term approach, recognizing that for most people the path out of poverty and vulnerability is an uphill struggle strewn with obstacles. Project funding comes and goes but MICAIA Foundation remains committed to the people and the communities in which they live. This is why we work mostly in just one Province – Manica, an area with 1.3 million people and a diverse socio-cultural and environmental landscape. By working in one place over time, with a clear and innovative strategy, we aim to create learning and case-studies that can be of use to others working elsewhere in Mozambique and beyond.


MICAIA Foundation’s work in recent years has encompassed agriculture, natural product enterprises and value chains (including beekeeping), eco-tourism, practical conservation, youth-led micro-enterprise and more.

This reflection paper focuses on the baobab value chain in the north of Manica Province, and specifically on the interactions between women baobab collectors and Baobab Products Mozambique (BPM), as BPM seeks to develop its inclusive business model.

For the last three years, the commercial interactions between BPM and the communities, particularly the women who collect the baobab fruit, have taken place in the context of a LEGEND-funded project implemented by Micaia Foundation. Micaia’s project sought to address two central problems:
