Who we are
From fields as varied as architecture and agriculture to social sciences and medicine, we strive to empower vulnerable communities through a holistic approach.
How it all started
Rohan Guyot-Sutherland’s background in Project Management led him to Cameroon in 2011 as Monitoring and Evaluation Expert for the UNDP on adaptation to climate change.
In addition to his job he became involved in several social and environmental initiatives, including CASA. Their values and struggle to uphold them particularly appealed to him. The more he became involved with them, the more he realized that to become resilient CASA would need a truly sustainable solution in tune with the surrounding communities and the environment. This inspired him to search for innovative techniques that would enable them to achieve self-sufficiency.
During this time he has also surrounded himself with a passionate group of individuals from many fields of expertise. They have joined him in creating the non-profit Eco-CASA and are willing to give up some of their time and money for this project.
