Community, Environmental Education and Training Programs

A few years from now, low-income communities will get the tools and power to make real change in their lives. Imagine solar power, imagine clear water and clean streets, imagine the eyes of a child witnessing amazing changes in his neighborhood led by the young people of his community. The knowledge needed for this change is power. We have the knowledge. Y.A Maof believes that in order to find solutions to local environmental challenges, it is necessary to work in partnership with the local community and encourage a change from within.
