Environmental Education for a Better Earth Cameroon (eefabecameroon) is a youth lead nonprofit created in 2017 by an inspirational environmental science graduate from the university University of Buea Cameroon, to empower young people, to take concrete action in the protection and preservation of the earth and its resources through sustainability, environmental and climate change education.
This initiative came into existence due to young people’s lack of climate information, despite the reoccurring climate stimuli (variability, extremes, and changes). With a vibrant team of environmental science graduates, the nonprofit executed several activities in schools and communities.
The nonprofit is designed to carry out its activities globally, with its headquarters in Douala Cameroon.
Since its creation, EEFABE has impacted hundreds of youth in schools and communities through presentations, workshops, and outreach. Its frequent online activities and campaigns ignited the idea of climate action among people of various backgrounds worldwide.
With its well-structured after-school curriculum on sustainability, environmental, and climate change education, climate change knowledge have been ignited in secondary schools and some higher institution of learning.
