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.

EarthLore works with rural communities to accompany them on a journey to revive their traditional ecological knowledge and practices, seed diversity and farming and governance systems, essential for navigating climate change and defending their land against growing threats from mining and industrial exploitation.
