FOUNDING DIRECTOR AND LEAD COMMUNICATIONS CONSULTANT
Being the leading communication experts in our field, we are motivated in setting the highest standards in everything we do. That means driving positive change wherever we can.
Caburn Hope’s brand essence and ethos is to emotionally connect people and employees, and to partner with an organisation that significantly empowers people to alleviate extreme poverty in their impacted communities by connecting, improving and harmonizing with nature is an approach that we whole heartedly support.
Making the world a better place for us and future generations is important to us. For this to happen, people and our surrounding nature need to co-exist in a sustainable way.
After a year of uncertainty and struggle, it’s important to reflect. Finding ways to bring communities together in times of social distancing and taking steps to help save our planet through reforestation of lost forests is a healthy response. This year more than any year is a wakeup call for change. “In COVID-19, the planet has delivered it’s strongest warning to date that humanity must change” and partnering with Eden Reforestation Projects is a fantastic step in the right direction.
Eden Reforestation Projects have a holistic approach to reforestation and ecological restoration. Their global restoration network is creating livelihoods for millions of people living in extreme poverty by empowering them to restore and protect forests on a massive scale.
They are a non-profit NGO whose mission is to provide fair wage employment to impoverished villagers as agents of global forest restoration. They hire the poorest of the poor to grow, plant, and guard the maturity native species forest on a massive scale.
Eden Reforestation Projects currently plants over 12,000,000 trees each month and achieved a milestone of planting 333 million trees in June 2020, with an aim to plant a minimum of 500 million trees each year by 2025.

Our mission with your support is to directly plant a minimum of 3,000 trees in 2021 with Eden Reforestation Projects. With every webinar attendee Eden Reforestation Projects will be planting 60 trees with our donation.
Deforestation is a global phenomenon caused by a variety of factors. These factors range from large-scale slash and burn practices to unsustainable agriculture to daily community forest destruction.
The regions most impacted by deforestation are highly poverty-stricken and underdeveloped areas. With few options to support their families, often members of impoverished communities are forced to destroy their local environment to survive, such as cutting down trees for construction, fuel, heat, and agricultural purposes. In the long term, the localised consequence of deforestation causes flooding, erosion and desertification.
One of the critical elements for any long term success on a large scale is funding, which is where we can help. Without donors, business partners, and grants, there is little chance of a successful sustainable reforestation project that benefits the people and the surrounding ecosystemFounding Director and MD, Elizabeth Spencer-Phillips
