Climate Change Campaign
AFCCSD runs various climate change campaigns through our Eco-Club platform, webinar and workshops which is organise to educate people. These programs help to raise awareness, ambition, and action by engaging people from all around the world to make a difference in tackling climate change. The more people are educated, the bigger the impact to tackle climate change.
We also provide climate change learning materials and an online modules that can be downloaded for free.To read more about our climate change, click here

Training of Vulnerable Youths in ICT
Due to lack of training and development opportunities, many youths in Africa become frustrated in attempt to find purposeful employment and many eventually loose hope and tend to crime or other self-destructive habits. African Foundation for Climate Change and Sustainable Development (AFCCSD) have taken the offensive and is tackling the skill shortage head-on. This project will provide skill training on computer, internet, computer languages and programming (coding) free of charge to under privilege youths in Africa. The primary demographic focus is unemployed,unskilled young people from disadvantage minorities.
The objective of this project is to create employment opportunities for unemployed and vulnerable youths in our African communities to establish their social and economic empowerment.
The first phase of the project will be carried out in Ashaiman, Ghana, west Africa. Two hundred (200) unemployed and vulnerable youths will benefits from this project.
AFCCSD is motivated to start this project in order to infuse hope and give these idealistic and desperate young people a real chance of a better and fulfilling life before its too late and they give up hope on themselves. To read more about this project, click here.
Solar Powered Borehole Projects
Water is perhaps the most vital natural resource on the planet. It is necessary for human survival and a critical input into our food, manufacturing, and energy systems. It also sustains the ecosystems and climates upon which both our built and natural world rely.
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 6 is focused on water, with several sub-goals related to different water challenges. More efficient use and management of water are critical to addressing the growing demand for water, threats to water security and the increasing frequency and severity of droughts and floods resulting from climate change. Underlying all the world’s water challenges are the looming repercussions of our changing global climate. Climate change introduces a huge amount of uncertainty to water supply reliability in the future.
Every two years the World Health Organization takes a look at access to improved drinking water around the world. The good news is that an additional 2 billion people gained access to improved water between 1990 and 2010, including 273 million in Sub Saharan Africa. The bad news is that some 780 million people have seen no improvement to their water supplies. While there was progress in most regions of the world, Sub Saharan Africa lagged behind. This is particularly true in rural areas where almost 20 percent of the people still use surface water—rivers, lakes, ponds, and irrigation channels—for drinking and cooking.
The absence of clean water affects everyone, but children suffer the most. Contaminated water leads to water-borne disease and death, particularly for children under the age of five. Older children often can’t attend school because they are burdened with collecting water from sources far from their homes.
In line with this, African Foundation for Climate Change and Sustainable Development (AFCCSD) seeks to deal with potable water supply – a priority for all those in the rural communities, which is increasingly threatened with drought. Our project focuses on solar powered boreholes which has a concrete objective and long term impacts for the community of the project beneficiary, as they get access to potable solar powered drinking water.

Our Tree Planting Project
He who plant a tree plant a hope. Planting trees is hugely beneficial to the world in the face of accelerating climate change.There is now a strong international scientific consensus that human activities is causing global warming. A substantial reduction in the planet's forest cover over recent centuries is a major contributor to this climatic change.
As trees grow they absorb carbon dioxide (CO2), the main 'green house' responsible for global warming, thereby reducing the concentration of this gas in the atmosphere.
At local level, tree-planting on deforested lands creates further environmental benefits. Trees also reduce soil erosion, thereby conserving soil quality upstream and water quality downstream.
As part of our project, African Foundation for Climate Change and Sustainable Development (AFCCSD), is planting fifty thousand (50,000) tree seedlings of different types in five selected communities in the Kassena Nankana East Municipal in the Upper East Region of Ghana. The socio-economic benefits of this project include direct employment, infrastructure development, scales-transfer. To read about the project proposal,
