About our company

Rejuvenate! Umhlaba is a land restoration company that was founded in 2019. Umhlaba is a word meaning land in many Southern African languages and our name resonates with our deep seated desire to ensure that land in Africa is revived and productive, supporting the blooming African population and beyond. We are developing an exchange for land restoration where companies that have a net negative impact on the land buy a share which entitles them to 1 hectare of land rehabilitated by us and other restorers. The rehabilitation itself includes improving soil structure of arable lands to increase productivity, planting trees in deforested areas, wetland rehabilitation and gully reclamation. As a result of our interventions, local communities increase their productive capacity and improve their livelihoods. There is also less expansion into forest land. Our corporate clients continue to operate as they should, but their land degradation footprint is reduced thereby contributing to SDG 15- Life on Land. Because our market is localised, companies know where their money is invested, they can see the work they are supporting and they can measure their impact on the local communities they work in. Our work directly or indirectly impacts on the following SDGs
