What is NAWA Green Partner Programme?
In early 2019, NAWA was proud to announce the brand new NAWA Green Partners Program to collaborate with and spotlight local businesses making extra efforts to reduce Ghana’s pollution.
All throughout the year, NAWA has been seeking to partner with up local businesses who demonstrate extra efforts
This program was the brainchild of NAWA’s Green Corps, a Special Interest Group launched at the 2018/19 Welcome Brunch, that gathers around 15 regular members dedicated to support a wide range of green projects (beach clean-ups, education projects, reducing plastic bag use, etc.)
The 2019 NAWA Ghana Green Partner window decal was designed for prominent display in the front windows of stores, restaurants and other business partners to advertise their premier partnership with NAWA.
