Community

The staff at GreenLife Group are not only passionate about our work, we are also passionate about helping others.

Recent and ongoing support includes:

The Adelaide Women’s Prison provides pre-release living skills accommodation for women who are being transitioned back into the community at the completion of their parole. These units were in a very dilapidated condition and the surrounding gardens consisted of overgrown gum trees, rogue plants and weeds.

The team from GreenLife Group removed the overgrown gardens and rotten sleeper retaining walls, excavated the footings for the new retaining walls and patio areas, installed new concrete block walls, paving, irrigation, plants and mulch. The units now provide a positive and welcoming environment for these women as they prepare to re-enter society.

GreenLife Group are sponsoring ten children through Transform Cambodia. On any one day there are over 15,000 young children working or living on the streets of Cambodia, scraping a living from scavenging, begging or selling.  They have no education or hope for the future. Transform Cambodia gives them not just hope, but a bright future. This support will help feed and educate the children, and train them to become leaders of Cambodia's future.  The children GLG are sponsoring are part of the two Edge Houses where they attend either in the morning or in the afternoon.

GreenLife Group are partnering with World Vision to provide sponsorship to ten children from Zimbabwe. This support will help to create lasting changes in these children’s communities – changes that can break the poverty cycle and benefit all the children living in that area, for generations to come.

Michael Rice Childhood Cancer Units provide free accommodation for country families whilst their child is undergoing treatment at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital in Adelaide. GLG donated labour and resources to assist with landscaping at these units. The following suppliers should also be acknowledged for their generous contributions:

  • Newton’s Landscape Supplies
  • Reclaim Industries
  • Toro Australia
  • Coromandel Native Nursery
  • Reece Plumbing

The Aroma Children’s Home, located in Sri Lanka is devoted to the care of children whose parents are deceased or unable to provide adequate care. For several years GreenLife Group has assisted the development of the children’s home by supporting the purchase of land and establishment of facilities. In addition to this GLG provides sponsorship to one of the children living in the home.

The Black Saturday bushfires devastated the state of Victoria in February 2009. GreenLife Group willingly provided significant financial support to the people affected by Australia’s most catastrophic bushfires.

South Africa has one of the highest incidences of AIDS in the world with almost 20% of the population affected. In addition it is estimated that there are over 1.2 million AIDS orphans. South Africa AIDS Orphans is a community project offering support to children affected by AIDS. GreenLife Group provided financial support to facilitate the transport of a 40 foot container to South Africa containing clothing, furniture and toys for distribution to the children affected in Cape Town.
