AFE HQ, Ibadan, Nigeria

AFE, Nigeria is a separate company, registered in Nigeria, West Africa.

Set deep in virgin forest where there has been little human footprint, the Emerald Forest exists in all tranquility as close to pristine nature as you could possibly get. It is located by the banks of the Osun River near a town known as Ikoyi Town near Ibadan, Nigeria. The headquarters (AFE HQ) is a 300 acre reservation comprised of pristine forest that has experienced very little human footprint. It is located on the banks of the River Osun and has 2 streams that traverse this untouched ecosystem.

The community surrounding AFE HQ is composed of about 10 villages that are experiencing progressive depletion and movement of able-bodied adults to the nearby overcrowded cities.

The staff on the reserve are primarily engaged in sustainable organic development and protecting the forest from poachers and log theft. The women hand press palm oil through traditional methods. AFE is one of the only certified organic farms in the area. There are stringent regulations for organic certification (see certificate attached).

Lekki Conservation Centre is on the Lekki Peninsula by the second toll gate. It is considered part of Lagos megropolis and is a haven for many birds, animals and reptiles. This reserve is a nature lovers delight, so close to the city, yet hidden and surprisingly quiet and peaceful.

AFE Projects worked closely with Lagos State Government to create massive, outdoor games, a koi pond, zip line and obstacle course powered by solar panels.
