The organisation’s sustainable environmental development is founded on a well-proven principles of focusing on creating an environment to benefit communities and the nation as whole.
In looking for a sustainable ways to implement our goals, we gave birth to the Ghana International River Festival in 2010. This is to help address the numerous challenges facing the Lower Volta Basin as the result of the construction of Akosombo and Kpong Dams.
