Better Globe AS is a Norwegian social enterprise that facilitates donations of trees and donation packages to counter poverty and corruption in Africa. They help crowdfund the activities of Better Globe Forestry Ltd. (BGF) in Kenya and Uganda. BGF is the forestry agent that plants and takes care of the trees until the trees mature.
BGF’s long-term goal is to reduce poverty and corruption in eastern Africa through social entrepreneurship and massive tree planting in arid and semi-arid areas. BGF creates jobs, helps farmers increase their land returns, and finances microloan banks, schools, and water-related projects.
Our donors who support us and donate trees and donation packages are, until now (2022), the primary funding source of BGF’s business activities. With your support, we can help address some of the world’s greatest challenges, and together we can make a real difference.
Each tree is estimated to capture 0.5 tons of CO2, which leads to you, as our supporter, becoming “Carbon Neutral” when you donate 24 trees per year. This is based on the average carbon footprint of 12 tons of CO2 per year. Depending on your lifestyle, you might want to purchase more trees to ensure you completely offset all your carbon emissions.
