ProtectOzone Sustainable Livelihood Initiative (ProtectOzone) was founded in 2015 with the mandate to mobilize citizen consciousness in protecting the ozone layer while ensuring food security using innovative (or innoNATIVE as we say) approaches. ProtectOzone seeks to achieve this mandate through targeted training, advocacy and campaigning, peer education, mentoring, and the establishment of sustainable demonstration farms. It has successfully championed awareness-raising events and developed academic resources to hone the capacity of young people to participate in combating extreme poverty and hidden hunger as Active Global Citizens. ProtectOzone’s approach is in line with both National policies and transnational policies. The organization is poised to ensure the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with a particular focus on climate action (SDSG 13), ending poverty and hunger (SDG 1 and 2), and promoting peaceful and inclusive societies (SDG 16).
