Green Africa Youth Organization (GAYO), is a youth-led gender-balanced advocacy group that focuses largely on environmental sustainability and community development.

Founded in the year 2014, we are dedicated to developing the human interest to observe basic natural laws and adopt the behaviour of living in harmony with nature. We seek a future where there is a balanced relationship between humans and the various natural systems on which they depend in such a way that all the components are accorded a proper degree of sustainability. Over the years our work has been in diverse fields including climate change, circular economy, disaster risk reduction, sustainable agriculture, and renewable energy activism.


Our mission is to research and provide solutions to pressing environmental issues through youth empowerment, skills development and public education.

We work directly with local communities to reduce the vulnerability of groups that are at risk to climate impacts such as children, youth and women who have a comparatively less adaptive capacity due to social and structural inequalities.


We work to create a world whereby conserving the natural environment will be the number one priority of the masses.

GAYO seeks to become an extensive organisation that guides individual conscious choices in promoting sustainability and reducing the vulnerability of communities to natural hazards and socio-economic risks. We are incorporated according to the laws of Ghana.
