Green Campus Evolution

In sub-Saharan Africa, where social safety nets are scarce or non-existent, climate events profoundly impact quality of life. For example, late or inadequate rainfall results in crop failure, and ultimately, hunger. Too much rain and crops, homes, livelihoods, and people are lost. For all its unpredictability, climate offers a golden opportunity to tap indigenous knowledge, preserve creation, and innovate.


Creation care initiatives at Africa University already minimize, recycle, and upcycle waste. The growing frequency of climate-related disasters, coupled with financial and sustainability benefits, is fueling Africa University’s transition to green energy sources. With your support, Africa University aims to achieve these goals by 2027:

  • 40% of non-energy-intensive university operations powered by solar energy.
  • Five (5) water conservation and waste-related projects initiated each year, on and off campus, between 2024-2027.
  • One waste recycling start-up launched.
  • 30% of student and faculty research focused on environmental sustainability concerns and funded by grants.
