Green Scenery was founded in 1989 as a voluntary organization by a small group of teachers at the Government Model Secondary School in Freetown.
Its establishment came about as result of the growing concern of the teachers over the spate of deforestation of the capital and especially the Forest Reserves.
This concern transformed into a concrete action when the teachers organized themselves and started targeting secondary school children within their proximity on issues of environmental degradation and impact of forest depletion.
It was from this humble beginning that Green scenery has been able to carve itself a niche for its current development. The organization has since been transformed into a National Non-governmental Organization.
Green Scenery’s vision is to empower the Sierra Leonean people to work towards peace and development, with equitable access to the country’s resources, equal access to facilities and opportunities, while upholding respect for human dignity.
Green Scenery strives to build capacities for positive attitude and behavior change towards human rights, peace and development in and across communities in Sierra Leone through a process that empowers people and adds value to their lives by:
1. Working in collaborative partnership with the relevant stakeholders;
2. Advocating for policy change;
3. Training and community empowerment initiatives;
4. Promoting the rights and interests of disadvantaged people.
