What we do

Our Initiatives

Regenerative Agroforestry (RAF)

RAF is at the core of our efforts to restore forests on farmlands impacted by land degradation and deforestation. By promoting sustainable agriculture and forestry practices, we foster a harmonious relationship between humans and nature.

Energy-Saving Cook Stoves

To address the dependence on wood fuel and its impact on forests, we have developed energy-saving cook stoves. These stoves offer an affordable and clean energy solution, benefiting both the environment and local communities.

Community-Based Ecological Mangrove Restoration (CBEMR)

Working closely with the fishing community, CBEMR focuses on restoring mangrove forests while involving the community in waste collection. This approach not only protects the environment but also provides a source of income for those involved.

Tree Planting and Restoration

Engaging the community and school children, our tree planting and restoration activities instil a sense of responsibility for environmental conservation. By planting a variety of trees, we contribute to the revival of vital ecosystems.

Our Impact

Over the years, ambakofi has achieved significant milestones in its mission to create a positive impact on both people and the environment. Notably, we have trained over 200 men and women in Regenerative Agroforestry, Community-Based Ecological Mangrove Restoration, and Environmental Education from seven villages.

To date, our efforts have resulted in the restoration of more than 10 hectares of mangrove sites across five villages, with over 10,000 mangroves planted. In two villages, we have successfully initiated 40.46 hectares of Regenerative Agroforestry, benefiting 125 family members practicing mixed cropping farming on 0.80 hectares of land.

Our nursery has grown over 8,000 fruit and wood tree seedlings, contributing to the reforestation efforts. Overall, more than 10,000 people have directly benefited from ambakofi’s initiatives since 2018.
