About The Project

The Kaffrine region has been significantly deforested with sparse savanna-like vegetation remaining. Water access is a challenge for farmers, making rain-fed agriculture the main option for the region, producing peanuts, millet, and corn with surpluses sold at local markets.

This project began in 2015 and farmers graduated in 2019, having successfully implemented the Forest Garden Approach on their own land. Participating farmers now have thousands of mature trees on their land and are enjoying a diverse array of fruits, vegetables, and grains as part of both their diet and their source of incom.
