Taking the KZN community from indifference to making a difference:
Habit @ Earth is a non-profit organisation whose mission is to encourage, mentor and empower communities and individuals within KwaZulu Natal to be proactive and responsible stewards in sustaining remaining natural habitats in the province.
The organisation’s vision is to restore the balance between the consumption and activities of communities in the KwaZulu-Natal province and the success of surrounding natural habitats.
With environmental education and community mentoring programs as the method of implementation the main objective is to grow individual and community awareness of the natural environment’s requirements and interaction in human lives, motivating individuals and communities to become progressively environmentally responsible. Programs are designed to take an active and passionate role of educating, encouraging and mentoring individuals and communities to reconnect to nature while increasing personal sense of responsibility. This objective is driven by the belief that this connection, and the understanding and love that follows is the very foundation we need to build a community of proactive and responsible environmental stewards.
The organization’s ancillary objectives all relate to the prevention of habitat destruction and environmental awareness and will be to promote or provide the following:
- Building ethical values
- Attitude adjustment
- Providing informative resources
- Taking a proactive stand for environmental ethics in the province of KwaZulu Natal
