The Better Globe Donation Package represent a time-tested and effective way of creating environmental and social change in East Africa. This profitable eco product has been sold since 2006 and is the main driving force for social change and Better Globe’s goal of making Africa a greener and healthier continent to live on.
Most people associate charity with giving without expecting anything in return, which no doubt is a very commendable and noble act. When it comes to efficiency however, decades of aid and charity work has proven the methods to be troublesome. Although many good charities are out there some pitfalls remain noticeable challenges and may include:
The Better Globe Donation Package has the answer to many of these issues and its profitability helps secure accountability. Together with the focus on transparency and integrity the negative effects of corruption are curbed. By paying long-term returns to the customers it makes sense economically to continue buying these Donation Packages on a monthly basis.
Better Globe is a company completely dedicated to social change and improving people's lives while caring for the environment. The Better Globe Donation Package is the core philanthropic product in that mission. The more people that buy Donation Packages the more trees will be planted, water donated and more people will get microfinance loans to improve their conditions. And more schools for children can be constructed, renovated and supported.
Most companies today have profits to stockholders as the main objective, often with terrible consequences to the environment and sometimes people, usually with poor communities as victims.
Better Globe represent an opportunity to take some of your income or investment and put to good use. You get help create a win-win-win situation where underprivileged communities receive what they need to work their own way out of poverty. The trees you buy and donate are planted in semi-arid land where they have a profound environmental impact, including reducing soil erosion and desertification. Long-term these trees may also help reduce deforestation and protect biodiversity while paying you at least 6 times the retail price in profit.
It is becoming usual for companies to donate parts of their proceeds to charity or have specific products that include a certain donation when you buy them, or are marketed as more sustainable. Sometimes this is a calculated move to increase sales through green marketing rather than a dedication to really make a difference. With Better Globe most of the profits go back to the customers who support the effort and to reduce poverty in East Africa. Rather than the traditional “for-profit corporation” one could call Better Globe a “for-impact corporation”.
The Better Globe Donation Package cost €53 and contains the following:
For the buyer
The Donation Package is Better Globe’s most important product to drive social change. Their other environmentally friendly product, which is the Better Globe Tree, do carry a significant social impact, but does not provide money to microfinance loans, support children’s education or give trees and water to poor farmers.
The Donation Package is now part of the strategy to spread agroecology to small farmers and outgrowers that enables a more complete assistance together with training, support, microfinance, partnership agreements, etc. Combining agroforestry and a unique set of strategies and technical knowledge the Donation Package is crucial to create permanent social change using AgroEcology - The Better Globe Way.
In addition to be in line with the new vision of the Kenyan Government stating that all farmers should reserve 10 percent of their land for wood lot by 2030, scientific research also points to small-scale traditional farming as the only way to avoid a global food crisis.
Modern and industrialized agricultural methods and large scale farming using monoculture is becoming too vulnerable to unreliable weather patterns and climate change. Industrialized farming is also a cause factor to the environmental and ecologic crisis we are now facing. According to the United Nations “only small farmers and agroecology can feed the world”.
