LLB Africa operates as a non-profit organization based in Barkley West in the Northern Cape Province of South Africa.
We are dedicated to the protection of the environment, taking cognisance of the correlation that exists between the environment, energy, education and health issues, these factors tend to be the drivers of environmental degradation. The restoration of the ecological system is very closely tied to the restoration of the socio-economic and climate systems, whereby restoration of one system impacts all others in a symbiotic relationship. LLB conceptualizes, promotes and participates in projects, to drive sustainable socio-economic development; climate change mitigation & adaptation and addressing the many linked issues facing the youth. Our quest is to help communities find practical and sustainable solutions to their problems within the framework of the sustainable development goals.
