Greenpop Foundation - Successful Charity 2018
Greenpop is an award-winning non-profit organisation. They envisage a world where green spaces and green living are POPular and accessible to everyone. They are on a mission to plant trees, green communities and empower environmental stewards across southern Africa.
Greenpop works on urban greening, reforestation and environmental stewardship. They were founded in 2010 and have since planted over 80 000 trees and inspired over 132 000 budding eco-heros at schools and other urban sites as well as forests and farms across South Africa, Zambia and Tanzania.
Through their work, they combat climate change, restart water cycles, turn urban deserts into regenerative landscapes that can provide nutrition, employment, education and economic opportunity.
