As a woman-owned business, Anise believes in the empowerment of women and the nurturing of their leadership and entrepreneurial skills. Anise supports the Green Belt Movement International (“GBMI”) and its founder, the 2004 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, Dr. Wangari Maathai. The movement started in Kenya with the simple step of digging a hole and planting a tree… the planting of hope.
Addressing a wide range of issues that directly affect the lives of women and their families, including education, access to water, equity, and reproductive health, GBMI provides women the know-how to improve their lives and the lives of others. The promise of GBMI is to share the Kenyan success with other countries in Africa.
