Rural Association for Mutual Aid - Oram

Rural Association for Mutual Aid - Oram was established in Maputo in 1992 as an organization engaged in the work for sustainable development in Mozambique. Since 1997, the focus was particularly access to land and formalization of small farmers' land rights. This is the organization that has the most experience with processes for land demarcation in the country and serves as a knowledge base for other organizations and institutions in the field.

Norwegian People's Aid has had a partnership with the Oram branch in Manica since 2005. Oram Manica has particularly worked with smallholders and land demarcation of the communities along the Beira corridor in Gondola district. Norwegian People's Aid's support has helped to increase the capacity of Oram Manica in disseminating information on agriculture, forestry and wildlife legislation, as well as land identification processes in rural communities. Oram has shown very high technical expertise on how to deal with issues related to land and natural resources in the country along with other civil society organizations.
