Our expertise

During it’s over 25-year existence, the guiding principles of EFA have been based on the premise that: “We cherish what we love and can only love what we know. Learning about the environment, is the first step to loving nature.” Therefore, a core aspect of EFA’s work is conducting environmental awareness, education outreach, training and practical demonstrations through hands-on projects in agro-forestry, renewable energy applications and sustainable livelihood initiatives, [targeting various audiences and beneficiary groups, especially school children, forest-edge communities, community based organizations and local authorities]. EFA also promotes environmental advocacy at national and regional levels, having played a key role in establishing national networks in Sierra Leone and Liberia and the Green Actors of West Africa network (GAWA), involving environmental actors in 14 of the 15 West African Countries.
