Who Benefits

The intire population of The Gambia will benefit from the nationwide tree planting excercise because of the income generated through cash-crops and the protection agains the desert. We are carefully selecting the type of trees and plants per area and village, together with the Gambian forestry department, based on their many years of experience working with the local communities and tribal demands.

Over the last years some community forests have been successfully established and we will work together with these communities to learn from them and use their knowledge and experience to make these forest grow.

The natural habitat of the Gambian animal life has been damaged and by growing trees these habitats and shelters will return again.
