Green Route Africa News

a)   Green Tribe News

Green Route Africa and their sister company Dragonfly Africa have been very busy over the last few months on some exciting Corporate Social Responsibility programmes.

On a recent educational to Zambia, the delegates were so moved by the good work being done at Tujatane School that they decided to all contribute to the schooling costs of one of the children, Jasper.

The staff of Green Route are all furiously knitting colourful squares, which will all be combined to make blankets. These will be donated to Iliso, a local school in Khayelitsha, Cape Town.

We recently ran a rather unique project called Hero’s Day. We had a group of 320 guests, who were subdivided into 19 smaller groups. Each of the groups visited a township project where they could interact with a local hero. Afterwards the guests joined forces at various wine farms and had to learn a variety of African song and dance, e.g. gumboot dancing, Kwela singing etc. At the gala dinner that evening each group had to perform what they learnt on stage! Great fun, educational, inspiring and they had a chance to give back to the local communities.
