Save My Future (SAMFU) Foundation is a local non-governmental conservation and development organization founded in 1987 by a Liberian Catholic Priest and two young conservationists. SAMFU was founded out of love for sustaining their natural resources and the environment, as well as the Liberian cultural heritage, and the desire to preserve them in order to enhance development and promote peace. The environment in where they are working is constantly changing. Liberia's civil war saw catastrophic mismanagement of Liberia's natural resources under past administrations. With this legacy in mind the international business community and Government of Liberia have established a structure by which to manage incoming concessions in the extractive industry sector. While the country is politically stable Liberia sees new challenges in the natural resources management and extractive industry sector.
SAMFU's Mission is to promote partnerships with environmental organizations, the Liberian government and communities to ensure a sustainable management of Liberia's natural resources.
They educate local people how to use natural resources of Liberia for the economic and social well-being of the whole community. Their charity also monitors the activities of multinational companies in Liberia to ensure that they meet government standards for the care and employment of their workers. Sustainability is at the heart of all their projects.
SAMFU is committed to sustain peace in Liberia. They train staff and target communities to ensure effective participation in promoting peaceful co-existence in Liberia through conflict prevention and transformation in the extractive industry sector.
