governmental organisation (NGO)

How did it all begin?

A group of journalists were concerned about the lack of
environmental awareness and its linkage to poverty in
Zambia.

In 1997 The Green House Foundation (GHF) was founded to
address this issue.

Three years later the GHF disbanded as it could not meet its
objectives. The surviving two members of the GHF were
part of the six environment and development enthusiasts
who founded the Green Living Movement (GLM).

The GLM was registered as a Non Governmental
Organisation in May 2000.
