Guinea

Guinea, a country endowed with mineral wealth and natural resources is poised for social and economic development after decades of authoritarian rule. The country has recently experienced political dialogue and change which has created a favorable climate for TREES and other NGOs and donors to expand their development activities. TREES will implement Donguel-Sigon FG Project in collaboration with the Union de Groupement Mariachage, Donguel-Sigon. Women comprise 75 percent of their 1,872 members. This group is very active in agroforestry to protect their water source. The union is already organized into 56 market gardening groups that TREES will train.
