Mission:  Mulanje Mountain Conservation Trust (MMCT) is an environmental endowment trust funded by the World Bank through the Global Environmental Facility (GEF) and aims at providing long-term reliable support for biodiversity research and conservation of biological diversity and sustainable utilization of natural resources of the Mulanje Mountain Forest Reserve.

Mulanje Mountain has a very rich and stunning forest reserve, which is a home to a rich and diverse endemic plant and animal species. It is also a catchment of headwaters and a source of nine sturdy perennial rivers and tens of streams.

The main objective is to manage the resources in the forest reserve by bringing in community participation and maximising benefits among resource users.
