Nana Ama Boahene-Addae worked with A Rocha Ghana; an environmental NGO providing practical conservation interventions aimed at protecting conserved forest zones in the country.  She joined the team working in Kyebi in the East Akyeam District in the Eastern Region of Ghana. A Rocha’s major task in the district is to help protect the Atewa forest. 

Nana Ama helped organize and participated in two forest forums which brought together all the stakeholders involved in the Atewa forest to talk about issues affecting communities and how to ensure the continual conservation of the forest. She also supported the field team in data collection, participating in outreach activities and site observations within the Atewa Forest.
