Afristar Foundation is a public benefit organisation that develops projects and strategies promoting Green Futures centered on a nature-based economy. We do this by advocating for, and creating, ‘green’ sustainable projects and developing multimedia educational resources.
Our underlying ethos is that there is a wealth of untapped natural heritage and social capital that can be mobilised to facilitate sustainable livelihoods. This notion can be embraced to educate and empower local people with traditional and appropriate knowledge, so as to utilise their natural resource base for sustainable economic upliftment.
Afristar Foundation utilises Permaculture design systems as the primary methodology of our community development strategy. Permaculture is an optimistic, action-oriented approach to the environmental, energy, food, water and climate crisis the world is currently facing. Its adaptibility and emphasis on meeting human needs means that it can be utilised in every climatic and cultural zone.
