About Green Leben Initiative
Zukunft Fuer Das Leben GuG (ZfL-Germany) the initiator of the Green Leben Initiative (GLI) as a social business for sustainable livelihoods of the marginalised in the society. Our ultimate objective is to consolidate wealth creation and the capacity of Africa’s agricultural value chain by optimising high-value crops (HVC) such as onions, ginger, garlic, cashew, mushrooms, Aquaponic farming for fish and vegetable, etc, to create sustainable wealth for African smallholder farmers.
Zukunft Fuer Das Leben was formed in December 2015 as a Social Business organisation to empower the marginalised in the society and have undertaken many transformational projects.
The Green Leben Initiative (GLI) is designed to sync with the “Marshall Plan with Africa,” by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Co-operation and Development which is advocating for a new partnership between Africa and Europe.
GLI currently has a presence in Ghana, Nigeria, Benin, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Namibia, Uganda, South Sudan and Sierra Leone.
