Greenpop is on a mission to (re)connect people with our planet. We plant trees and have fun doing it! We run urban greening and reforestation projects, spread environmental awareness, and empower environmental stewards across all Sub-Saharan Africa.
Greenpop was founded in 2010 and has since planted over 111,000 indigenous and fruit trees at schools and other urban sites, community farms as well as forests across South Africa, Zambia and Tanzania. Our small-scale reforestation projects generally take place in conservation and/or protected areas which require indigenous forest restoration, and trees are planted in a way that mimics their natural growth, therefore increasing biodiversity.
Greenpop Foundation NPC is a registered non-profit organisation and can issue a donation receipt for your tax deduction at the end of the tax year.
