About the Project
Located northwest of the Department of Kaffrine, the project consists of 22 villages in the Boulel and Gniby Communes. It is facing a serious crisis of agricultural land. Available land is becoming more degraded and is unable to feed a growing population, resulting in a large rural migration of young people to big cities and Europe.
This project will be a great hope for our farmers who wish for sufficient and sustained agricultural production.

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.
