This is a running list of websites built for small serious African NGOs (non-governmental organizations) that Scott’s Web Shop built or is assisting with.
These projects have much in common, chief amongst them is the concern with the mitigation of global warming. They are working with youth – most as orphanages – teaching them sustainable farming. They are also members or associated with Team 54 Project:
Team 54 Project International is a US based 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, that identifies unique and innovative ways to advocate for SDG13 and to take climate action, towards building climate resilience in the community, with specific focus on existing systems: environment, agriculture, education, economy, health and security.
My hope is with the help of capable volunteers to continue this throughout the developing world.

Repair Earth Projects in Zimbabwe.
Planting trees, usually as part of educational events on permaculture in the schools and orphanages:
Repair Earth Projects (REP) was started in April 2016 and mobilizes communities to curb environmental degradation through tree planting.
Our mission is to raise tree seedlings and to plant and protect them in partnership with local communities.
As a Permaculture project, no herbicides or insecticides or artificial fertilizers are used. This is per Certified Organic criteria and standards.
No genetically modified seeds (GMO) are used. The emphasis is on using heritage seeds and food plant varieties where possible. Hybrids may also be used.
We also protect endangered species and ensure that living tree stumps, tree roots and seeds are re-vegetated.

“My is Rev. Sister Lilian Chibiko. I am from Imo State Eastern part of Nigeria. I have lived in Sweden for more than 14 years and worked with African immigrants in Sweden. I decided to go back finally in 2016 to help my people. I have been very active in campaign and awareness on climate change. I want to get involved actively because in Nigeria, awareness is still very poor. I use renewable energy as clean energy. I teach production, installation and maintenance of solar energy to encourage people to reduce the use of fossil fuels. I need to be more active locally and internationally.” ~ https://www.facebook.com/726229167
