Africa’s Green Generation

Africa’s Green Generation (AGG) is a community based, environmentally friendly and sustainable NGO that seeks to address social and environmental issues in our country. AGG  is founded in Lesotho with its main office in Maseru.  We are currently operating in the Moshoeshoe II community and our ultimate aim is that our efforts can be a best practice that can be replicated throughout the country and the African continent at large.
