Imagine a community where bicycles, furniture, household items, and musical instruments are made out of bamboo! Yes, that is the Imafon that we see.
Imafon, Akure, Ondo State has a large mass of bamboo which is often burnt. This is one of the local resources within the community that is burnt and seen as a waste.
We are currently working with the community to make it a hub for creative materials from bamboo. Guess what! We will also be setting up a bamboo farm within in Imafon so that the community will learn about environmental sustainability. We will not do this alone, we will do it with the consent and active participation of the community. This is because we believe that any process of change needs to come from within the community.
You are welcome to join us!
