Greenpop is an award-winning registered non-profit organisation headquartered in Cape Town, South Africa. We work to restore ecosystems and empower environmental stewards through reforestation, urban greening, sustainable development, and environmental art projects across Sub- Saharan Africa. Our vision is a Treevolution – a world where people and nature thrive together. We’re on a mission to plant trees, green communities and empower environmental stewards across Sub-Saharan Africa.
Forests provide vital services to both people and the planet, bolstering livelihoods, providing clean air and water, conserving biodiversity and responding to climate change. However, in Sub-Saharan Africa, forest cover is decreasing at an alarming rate. From unregulated logging (often by foreign companies), to clearing for cash crops, to overuse of trees for fuel, human activity is putting increasing and devastating pressure on forest and woodland ecosystems.
Greenpop’s Forests for Life programme aims to connect small-scale organisations across Sub-Saharan Africa with funding and support to plant trees, restore forest and woodland habitats, effectively manage critical catchment areas, and improve the lives of communities who rely on forest resources.
