We Promote & Support The Conservation of Baobab Trees
and the lives of communities who live among these magnificent trees.
Baobabs are an iconic and important African tree. These magnificent trees form an integral part of many savannah ecosystems, but also play an important role in rural people’s lives, providing nutritious everyday food, fibre for making household products, medicine for ailments and as a connection to the spiritual world. More recently, the global trade in baobab products has connected many thousands of rural African families with a direct income from the products made from baobab fruit.
The Baobab Foundation is a non-profit organisation in South Africa that promotes and supports the conservation of baobab trees and is involved in improving the lives of communities who live among these trees.
The Baobab Foundation provides a means for companies, start-ups and people around the globe, to make direct contributions to the care of these ancient trees and to the lives of the women and children who live around them.
We’ve called it Creating a Culture of Caring because we believe caring for ourselves, others and our environment is so urgently needed in our world right now. Caring needs to become not just something we do now and then, but what we do on a continual basis so that to care becomes naturally embedded in our culture.
