She Quit Real Estate to Grow Bamboo

Inspired by reading and watching news on climate change, Divine Nabaweesi quit being a real estate agent to start a social enterprise business of Bamboo growing.

She says the turning point was after she lost interest and passion of continuing as a real estate agent -a job she held for seven years.

"It's when I decided to take a few months off and think about my life that I started reading about trees. As you know, there is something in the news about climate change and deforestation every day," she says.
