We help transfer new technologies and developments in the fields of Emerging Energy products and Green Technologies to rural Forestry and Farming communities. It is also our goal to work closely with NGO’s, Governmental- and Charitable Organizations to effectively achieve this transfer of information. Our ever expanding range of products and services will reduce energy demand, improve quality of living and promote self-sufficiency. We also offer aForest Mensuration and Mapping service, Innovative Charcoal-making kilns, and we are a Digital solutions provider.
We have partnered with the Department of Environmental Affairs’ Natural Resource Management (NRM), Land User Incentive (LUI) Programme to eradicate Invasive Alien Plant Species (IAPs) and create employment as part of the Working for Water (WfW) programme. Since January 2014 we have employed 27 men, women and youth in the Kokstad area (Sisonke District Municipality) and the project is known as Vuthisa Charcoal Projects. The number of people employed in this programme will grow to 39 by the end of 2014 and more than 100 ha of infested areas will be rehabilitated back to pristine grasslands in year one alone, and preventing biodiversity loss.
The Energy and Environment Partnership for Southern and East Africa (EEP-S&EA) have partnered with us until July 2015 to fund 50% of the Vuthisa Biochar Initiative project costs. The EEP Programme in Southern and East Africa is jointly funded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Finland (lead donor), The Austrian Development Agency (ADA) and the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID).

The Vuthisa Biochar Initiative aims to develop Emission Reducing Biochar kilns, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, create carbon sinks and develop cost effective Eco-fertilizers and soil amendment products. As a “for profit” start-up organisation we find it hard to convince Corporate donors to include us in their CSI programmes. Please support our initiatives by visiting our Donation page.
