Oando Foundation Expands Environmental Education Reach


Oando Foundation, an independent charity established to support the Nigerian government in achieving its Universal Basic Education goal has commenced the fourth phase of its Clean Our World project (COW IV) in Lagos reaching 54 public primary schools in 25 communities.

This milestone marks a significant step forward in the Foundation’s ongoing commitment to environmental education, sustainability, and community development.

Building on the success of the previous phases, COW phase IV focuses on standardized lesson delivery through wide-scale capacity building for teachers, deployment of environmental educational materials, and various in-school climate action activities, laying the foundation for a cleaner, greener future. With active government participation, this cycle of the project ensures uniform, consistent, and high-quality delivery of environmental education in schools across Lagos State.

Head of Oando Foundation, Mrs. Adekanla Adegoke stated that, “environmental education plays a crucial role in equipping students with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to address complex environmental challenges. As we confront these challenges, investing in environmental education becomes imperative for building resilient communities and securing a sustainable future for all.




“We are excited to commence the implementation of Clean Our World Phase IV, which will empower teachers, engage students, and foster a culture of environmental stewardship and citizenship.”




Since its inception, the Clean Our World project has evolved and expanded, reaching more communities and schools.




In collaboration with Sumitomo Chemical, a leading Japanese chemical company, Oando Foundation has enlightened various schools and communities in Lagos State about environmental education and sustainable waste management practices such as recycling.




From reaching seven schools in three communities in COW phase 1, twelve schools in five communities during the second phase, and 24 schools in 10 communities for the third phase, the project has demonstrated its effectiveness in promoting environmental education, sanitation, and recycling.
