About us

The Ghanaian-German association "Schulwälder für Westafrika e.V." (School Forests for West Africa) is committed to environmental protection by focusing our work on the environmental education of children and young people from both countries within the framework of school partnerships. In doing so, we follow a learning-by-doing approach: In our tree nursery in Ghana, we raise seedlings using environmentally friendly measures (e.g. no pesticides) and then distribute them free of charge to our partner schools in the central region of Ghana. There, the school children plant the trees in their schoolyards and take care of them. In this way, they contribute to the reforestation of the rainforest and at the same time get shady places for lessons and for playing. As additional motivation, the pupils receive solar lamps. These solar lamps are a clean and cost-effective alternative to candles or paraffin lamps, which are harmful to the environment and health.
