About the Project
Located northeast in the Kaffrine department, the Kaffrine 4 project area includes 16 villages in the communes of Sagna, Diokoul, Missirah Waden, and Maka Yop. Groundnut monocropping has made farmland increasingly degraded with a gradual decline in yields. It is neighboring the Koungheul East Forests as well as the Sanga and Male Hodar Forests to the south. The FGA will enable the populations of these villages to meet their food needs, while sustainably managing the surrounding ecosystem.

Benefits for Farmers
In addition to year-round family support, the sale of fruits and vegetables has allowed farmers to take on some family expenses such as school expenses, health, and clothing. Also, the forest garden limits the rural exodus and immigration of rural youth to Europe.
The forest garden project shortens or removes the lean season and gives activities to farmers who do not have constant work during the dry season.
