Milla Sunde and Marlow Bevan established The Green Children Foundation to help raise funds and awareness for those in need. In 2005, they traveled to Bangladesh and visited Grameen Bank, known as ‘the bank for the poor’. It was here they met Professor Muhammad Yunus, who is the father of the ‘microcredit’ movement.
After meeting so many empowered poor women, they were inspired to get more involved. The Green Children Foundation is designed to help shine a light on the positive people and solutions that are making a real difference in the world.
To this date, the foundation has supported a new eye care hospital in Bangladesh, student scholarships, new microfinance projects, orphaned children and animals in need. For more information please check out ‘Our Projects’.
