Senegal – Kaffrine 3

Kaffrine 3

About the Project

The Kaffrine 3 area was heavily forested in the past, however, today the land is degraded. The project area is right next to a community forest, where tree-cutting is prohibited, so farmers need ways to sustain their livelihoods. The gardens in this project will have all the benefits typically associated with a Forest Garden, while simultaneously guaranteeing the protection of the local forest. Differences between this project and other TREES Kaffrine projects include being closer to the Gambia border and higher rainfall totals.
