These learning materials have reached over 2.9 million people across Sub-Saharan Africa with the purpose of creating greater social awareness around environmental issues. Climate change and pollution affect everyone, and this is reflected in our approach. From farming and agriculture to serious health concerns, this issue concerns every person on an individual level. Knowledge can help create awareness and save the planet for future generations.
