Description of Challenge
The challenge facing us is how we can become more socially, economically and environmentally conscious, both as individuals and in community, in order to ensure that we help in the construction of a more sustainable future.
Afristar Foundation was founded in 2001 as a South African Benefit Company and registered as an NGO focused on the design and implementation of sustainable development programmes. The Afristar Foundation acts as an umbrella organisation that uses permaculture as a guiding methodology to engage in sustainable development initiatives nationally and in the broader region. The foundation tries to educate on, and provide services related to, how we can help establish a more sustainable future.
The foundation’s mission is as follows:
To educate, train, and engage the people of Southern Africa in the development of sustainable models for ecological human settlement and local economic development that facilitate the ethics of care of people and care of the Earth.
To promote and demonstrate sustainable solutions to everyday problems that can be implemented by anyone, anywhere.
To catalyze a transformation: from a world of scarcity, poverty and conflict, to a world of abundance, prosperity and peace.
