Our project partner GAYO

GAYO was formed at the end of 2013 by a group of passionate environmental science students with the aim of building the capacity of local communities. The goal was to enable them to protect the environment through campaigns, workshops, advocacy and the provision of services that focus largely on ecological sustainability.
