    A Welcome message from the co-founders

    The organization was co-founded by Allison BaiBai and Adija in Nashville Tennessee. We are Originally from Freetown, Sierra Leone pursuing graduate degrees in Chemistry and Environmental (Sc) Engineering. The foundation was established in 2013, with the aim at arousing and enhancing public awareness and understanding of environmental issues as well as encouraging the active participation of people from all walks of life in working together for a better, livable and productive environment.

    We are a non-profit organization that will be responsible for raising environmental awareness among the public as well as partners with other environmental groups. In the coming years, SEEF will organize numerous environmental education activities that will include formal and informal programs. We also collaborate with environmental groups in conducting a diversity of projects and continuously request funding from other grant-making organizations for environmental education and minor projects and community activities.

    You are welcome to browse our website and get involved in ways of combating water and air pollution, and environmental toxicology. We are highly involved with high school environmental education curriculum, and we welcome your support by donating. Apart from this, you are also invited to reflect on what you could do to conserve nature and improve our living environment and how you might work with SEEF to give your support.

    Building a better future requires the collective effort of everyone in the United States, Sierra Leone and around the world. I sincerely wish, we would join hands into a sustainable, and livable environment, and a better world.
