Beneficiaries

  • Children / Young People

    Many girls in Africa are unable to access schooling as they are harvesting wood & water & spend hours preparing the daily meal over a smoky fire. This lack of opportunity leads to depression and the inhaled smoke leads to illness & premature death.

  • Children / Young People

    Many young girls are unable to attend schooling during their menstruation period as they lack access to affordable sanitary pads. We wish to employ more community members successfully making washable sanitary pads for women & school girls to use.

  • The General Public / Mankind

    Climate change is making food production more difficult. Those on greatest need are most affected. By introducing conservation agriculture agriculture & permaculture principles food can be grown successfully & in a restorative way. It takes change!

  • Nature

    3 billion people each day cook their meal on open fires. Trees, shrubs & undergrowth are used as fuel. This is hazardous to the environment releasing CO2 into the atmosphere, destroys habitats & leaves soils exposed to erosion. Enter Wonderbags!

Our Vision for a better future

  • We wish to see a future where many of the poorer community members in Africa become more self reliant & take care & stewardship of their environments. Where many more young girls access schooling and cooking is done without harm. Where food can be grown in a restorative manner through conservation agriculture using permaculture principles.

Our goals to make a difference

  • Prevent premature death through smoke inhalation via the introduction of Wonderbags - slow cookers.

  • Teach and demonstrate conservation agriculture & permaculture via the development of a teaching farm

  • Teach local farmers suffering crop failure & soil erosion conservation agriculture via outreach prog

  • Lift people from poverty via employment making washable sanitary pads for local women & school girls

  • Enable many more young girls to access schooling and learn about their human rights.
