Embassy and development agency support for the festival has remained a vital component of the festival. Most have supported EFFA since its inception. Increasingly, a good number of films are also reaching the festival through these partnerships. These films have improved understanding of the environment by local audiences as they illustrate how challenges are being met elsewhere. The support of our international partners also demonstrates the importance of combining global as well as local perspectives on critical issues related to the environment.
Corporate support for the festival has also been important to EFFA. Wienco Ghana Ltd remains our most loyal corporate sponsor, supporting the festival for the eighth year. We look forward to enhancing the collaboration with all our sponsors to further expand EFFA’s educational impact in the coming years. Many other organizations and corporates contributed in kind, with vital product support such as educational books, materials and drinks: EPP Books Services, Nestle Ghana, Indomie, Voltic and Woolworths. We are most grateful to you all.
