About us

The Environmental Foundation for Africa (EFA) aims to protect and restore the environment in West Africa.

For over 15 years, EFA has led:

  • environmental education (EE) and awareness raising campaigns;
  • restored degraded lands and conserved pristine forests;
  • minimized the impacts of civil war on the environment and its inhabitants and;
  • equipped thousands of people with sustainable livelihood skills such as agroforestry.

Today, capitalizing on its wealth of experience, EFA specializes in environmental awareness raising and capacity building at the national, regional and international levels using high impact communications tools and training programs to build an environmentally conscious society motivated to maintain the integrity of nature in Africa.
