What We Do
Predominantly in Kenya, as the tropical conditions near the equator make them grow up to 10 times faster than anywhere else on the planet – that’s great for mitigating climate chaos. We plant a few in the UK too.
Cool, solid stone classrooms are a joy to be in and they make a huge difference to students and teachers. They improve the potential for learning enormously too. At the school above, grades improved by 14% points across the board.
The Mothers of the Forest are a phenomenal women’s group. They’re rewriting their future and underpinning it with education. They’ve planted many thousands of trees and continue to strengthen their framework of support.
We apply an holistic approach to learning by working with local teachers who have solutions to the common problems people face. This image shows permaculture in action and a route to greater water and food security.
Everything we do as human beings has an impact on our planet.
We’re striving to ensure that ours, and yours, is as light green as it could ever be.
