Tombe.org promotes the social well-being of the community through harmonizing with natural resources.
Tombe.org is a non profit organization which is aiming at improving the welfare of the people in agriculture, education, health and sound environmental practices. It adopted its name from the Tonga speaking people of Zambia. It is a word translated as dirt or unhygienic. For thousands of years recycling has been practiced through planting of trees, farming as well as burning of garbage. However, with the rapid urbanization over the 100 years or so, proper recycling is proven to be a challenge. In 2019 Michelo Kalambo the President and CEO of Tombe visited his home village of Macha and whilst there observed the void and need to address such an environmental dilemma. Upon his return to the States, he shared the situation of his village with likeminded passionate environmental and sustainability professionals who highlighted a few solutions for such communities. Tombe follows all recycling principles with respect to the community needs and traditions which have been there for many years. Tombe was formed to address this unhygienic environment.
