Since 2014, Earth Guardians has been working with young people and children in Africa to strengthen their capacity in environmental education, especially the causes and impacts of climate change. Africa is one of the continents on which the consequences of climate change are more visible.
Through workshops on games, cultural and sports activities, and reforestation festivities, Earth Guardians has educated, trained and accompanied over ten thousand young people in Ghana, Burkina Faso, South Africa, Togo, Nigeria, and Rwanda in Uganda and Somalia.
More than 25,000 trees have been planted.
In order to contribute effectively to the preservation of the environment for the generations, Earth Guardians is expanding its workforce in Africa from day to day, from country to country, to reach more young people and support them as valiant leaders, aware of the current challenges of the world.
Earth Guardians actions in Africa support all ages. For African countries and very low-income populations (generally living on less than $ 1 a day), concerted actions are being carried out with local populations to find solutions to problems of precariousness in certain localities . With population growth in Africa, pressure on natural resources (water, forests, biomass) in addition to the climate crisis, creates a desperate situation in many countries where Earth Guardians is present.
Solutions, such as empowering women, are on the way to development in these different countries of the African continent.
Another priority of Earth Guardians in Africa is to connect young people to environmental education, science and technology so children and young people can learn new technologies used in assessing the state of the environment and climate change. We are committed to preparing children to better understand and respond to the effects of climate change.
Earth Guardians has a team of young scientists from Ghana's universities of agriculture and environment who are very committed to working with all those who wish to accompany us on this new initiative.
