For centuries, local fisherman have relied on Fosu Lagoon as a life source and means to make a living. But over the years, the area has become extremely polluted with solid waste and "invisible" pollutants.

Nearby manufacturing plants and mining industries have been using the lagoon as a dumping site for decades. It has taken a detrimental toll on the quality of water, surrounding ecology, and most importantly, the health and well-being of the people that depend on it for their survival.

SAVE

THE COAST

Fosu Lagoon accounts for 80% of the fish consumed in the surrounding villages and those further in-land. Sadly, many of these families are forced to live off of the fish that are ingesting the chemicals and harmful bacteria of the lagoon. They understand the risks and are thankful to have our team of experts help them restore the area. We are hopeful that through our environmental studies, the relocation of artisans, and the green development in the area, there is a bright future ahead for both the quality of living and economic growth in the region.
