Our ties with the Bushmen began in February 2001 when our Marketing Director decided that she felt so strongly about the heritage behind Redbush Tea that she wanted to create a means to give back something to the descendants of the people who first discovered this amazing plant. In so doing we hope to help them preserve their culture and their dignity.

The Redbush Tea Company has, ever since been giving a percentage of the profits from the sale of their teas to the Kalahari Peoples Fund (KPF). They are a 35 year old, not for profit organisation that came together to help the San and other peoples in southern Africa. KPF raises funds and provides technical and advisory assistance, principally in the areas of community based land & resource rights. Most critical in its mission are achieving progress in education, human rights and development land use planning, as well as assisting in building schools, medical facilities etc.
