After a long and participatory process with all of our staff, not all of whom speak English or even Chichewa as their first language, we have all agreed on the following Vision and Mission. Comments welcome!

Many thanks to SIT Graduate Institute Intern Adam Goldberg for helping us to facilitate this process.

VISION

Nature’s Gift Permaculture aims to: ’embody and promote, to an exceptional standard, an assets based approach to development which mobilizes people to improve quality of life and realize self-reliance by creating mutually beneficial relationships between humans and nature.’

MISSION

At NGP we ‘design, demonstrate, teach and research diverse, applicable permaculture solutions as options toward a sustainable now. At all times we follow the three ethics of permaculture: Earth Care, People Care, Fair / Surplus share.’
