Founded in September 2020 by Julia Washbourne (CEO of Bamboa) and co-founder Dr Shyam Paudel (Forest and climate specialist), The Grow Bamboo Initiative has one main mission:
PROMOTE BAMBOO PLANTATION GLOBALLY TO FIGHT CLIMATE CHANGE AND EMPOWER LOCAL COMMUNITIES AND ECONOMY.
The initiative has started by creating the first community bamboo plantation project in Kavre District, Nepal by supporting a dozen of local families from Dhaneshowri village. One hectare of 250 bamboos has been planted so far. We need your support now more than ever!
