About the Project

While there are many TREES projects in the Kaffrine region, Kaffrine 3 is slightly different in that it is closer to the Gambian border and experiences higher rainfall totals.

The Kaffrine 3 area was heavily forested in the past, but 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 basic needs and their livelihoods. The Forest Gardens in this project have all the benefits typically associated with a Forest Garden, while simultaneously guaranteeing the protection of the local forest.
