Eko Charitable foundation
With its estimated 21 million people, Lagos is choking from its pollution. The signs are everywhere. In particular, the effects of pollution on the coastal area are immeasurable and it impacts all aspects of social and environmental life. The impact is direct and indirect: from the local fishermen to the lifeless sea turtles that float to the shores. The situation in Lagos is so extreme that there is nowhere one can look at without spotting plastic.
Eko Charitable Foundation for Poverty Alleviation is an incorporated Foundation registered in Nigeria in January 2015 created to alleviate poverty and improve living conditions through environmental protection and sustainable commerce.
