Goa Foundation

The Goa Foundation is the best known of Goa's environmental action groups.[1] Founded in 1986 by a group of Goan environmentalists each fighting individual environmental battles, the organisation today holds influence with the judiciary, government and the general public, having persisted with its environment agenda for nearly two decades.

The work of the Foundation spans different areas and fields, all related in some way or another with the conservation of the Goan environment:

The Foundation has assisted in the formation of a non-profit company called Green Goa Works, chaired by Wendel Rodricks, Goa's internationally known fashion designer. The company has been registered under Section 25 of the Company's Act. It deals only with environmental rehabilitation projects especially those relating to environmental friendly means of disposing of solid wastes.
