 The problems we saw 

MAPA communities are constantly seen as helpless victims in need of a saviour and never part of the solution themselves. What little support is given to them is therefore patronising and condescending in nature.

Many grants and other funding opportunities for climate and environmental initiatives favour technological solutions, only accept applications in English, and require applications to be submitted online. There is thus huge untapped potential of high-impact grassroots initiatives from areas that do not speak English and do not have easy access to the Internet (i.e. many MAPA).

 

The scale, complexity, and severity of the climate crisis can be overwhelming and cause people to feel helpless and like they are too small to make a difference. This creates an inertia that prevents people from taking any action at all.

 The GreenCheck solution 

 

Involve passionate

& climate-conscious people in making resources such as money & skills accessible to communities who are typically denied them, in a manner that keeps power in their hands & ensures self-sufficiency!

 What we do for Partners 
 
 

Funding

Network Creation

Capacity Enhancement

GreenCheck enables you to participate in climate action efforts by contributing your money to our Partner Groups as a Supporter.

With your contribution, groups that need financial resources to cover their essential operational & project costs are able to scale their activities and reach their full potential. 

 

Read more about GreenCheck funding in our FAQs.  

GreenCheck Community is a hub for GreenCheck Partners, Community Members, and Supporters to connect and share ideas and opportunities.

 

While Supporters donate to and support Partner Groups, Partners also have much to offer Supporters. GreenCheck Community facilitates a two-way, reciprocal exchange of support and dismantles unequal power dynamics that are present in conventional philanthropy and charity.

Read more about our online GreenCheck Community in our FAQs.  

GreenCheck facilitates training and opportunities to develop GreenCheck Partner Groups’ skills and capacities to maximise their potential.

 

Some Partners have needs that extend beyond financial ones. Capacity enhancement activities meet these needs and minimise any remaining barriers that stand in their way to maintain and improve their work.

 What your journey with GreenCheck looks like 

GreenCheck helps you amplify your support to make a real and positive impact on communities and our climate.

We redirect resources from Supporters (like yourself!) to high-impact, community-led climate action groups in MAPA. These groups experience some of the harshest effects of the climate crisis so they know best how to address it. This means that by donating and/or volunteering with our Partner(s), you are contributing in the best way you can.

Our Partners engage in climate solutions that stem from community needs and beliefs, and they retain full ownership over their own projects. So, by becoming a Supporter, you not only become a part of the fight against the climate crisis, but you do so in a way that emphasises equity* and decoloniality*.

As Supporters, you will also be invited to join our GreenCheck Community. Whether you’re an experienced activist or someone who is hearing the phrase “climate crisis” for the first time, we promise you a welcoming and accessible space to learn, grow, and connect with others.

*  Key Terms


Regenerative
To go beyond sustainability (maintenance of conditions for the long-run) and reach restoration and an improvement of conditions over time.

Equity
A fair distribution of benefits and burdens across all segments of a community, prioritising those with highest need.

Decoloniality
A confrontation and undoing of colonial, social, political, academic, economic etc. systems and ways of thinking (e.g. white supremacy, homophobia, etc.).
