Senegal – Kaffrine 5

Kaffrine 5

About the Project

Located northwest of Kaffrine, the project consists of 22 villages in the Boulel and Gniby Communes where farmers are facing ongoing challenges with land and soil health. Available land is becoming more degraded and is unable to feed the growing population, resulting in a large rural migration of young people to big cities and even overseas. This project will support Forest Garden farmers working toward sufficient and sustainable agricultural production.
