Founded by the indomitable Nobel Peace Prize winner Wangari Maathai, The Green Belt Movement, headquartered in Nairobi, Kenya, has earned the anger of the Kenyan government for its work to get communities to become environmentally conscious. By inspiring may women throughout Kenya to plant trees, The Green Belt Movement has created grassroots environmentalists and stewards of the planet who also learn income-generating skills such as forestry and bee-keeping.

With a flair for spontaneity, pizzazz, creative excellence and her own unique sense of aesthetic grace and perspective, we have our very dear friend, Belinda (or B, to some of us). Although an incredibly accomplished professional and career woman, B’s down-to-earth approach and demeanor transcends all scenarios, communities and people. She manifests, in her day-to-day, the essence of the word “Zomppa” as demonstrated by her extraordinary commitment to creating sustainable and positive change for us and future generations to come. She’s asked for a dog every year since she was five. Check out Belinda’s work on global education research and coaching: www.hummingbirdrcc.com or more about her portfolio www.belindachiu.com.
