We guide people, organisations, systems and processes toward environmental, social and economic best practice.
We strive to make our home planet a more secure place by promoting sustainable livelihoods while protecting our environment and natural and cultural heritage.
EcoAfrica’s large network extends way beyond its own in-house staff and associates. The company has a strong ethic of mutual capacity building, both within the company itself and with its clients. We believe in devolving responsibility and sharing perspectives and opportunities with other groups, organisations, and individuals from the highest echelons of government down to local communities. In this manner, larger networks are established at all levels of society.
As an example, EcoAfrica has trained numerous tour guides in several countries, more than fifty trainers in various fields and more than twenty development facilitators from previously disadvantaged backgrounds. Over a thousand people have been directly employed on projects managed by EcoAfrica, and many of them have started their own organisations, businesses, Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), and other development entities. This policy of fostering collective action has allowed the small, close-knit EcoAfrica team to substantially enlarge its footprint in the developing world.
EcoAfrica is intensely aware of the power of public opinion and collective thinking. Awareness raising at all levels is considered pivotal to providing a sound basis for policy processes, natural resource management and equipping teams to deal effectively with a range of environmental issues. Therefore, every opportunity is taken to share information and improve access to appropriate training that include hands-on training, short tailor-made courses and innovative information sharing platforms and other Information and Communications Technology (ICT) applications. EcoAfrica is closely aligned with its sister company Francois Odendaal Productions (FOP) and the NGO International Knowledge Management (IKM) to further sustainable outcomes.
EcoAfrica with its partner companies International Knowledge Management and FOP Films is a set of three organisations in a one-stop shop that can service a wide range of needs from the highest to grassroots level. Stop with us and look no further.
