Thank you for your support
In the Seret region, a joint re-greening effort of the government, community and NGO´s works to stop land degradation, protect natural resources and improve food production. It does so mostly using “exclosures”: areas where livestock is not allowed, to rehabilitate degraded land.
WeForest works with this movement through the enriching of encroached exclosures using native trees. The project works in close collaboration with the local community and supports them with trainings on natural resource management programs, income generating activities and providing material support.
The project specially targets landless youth and women groups by engaging them in income earning scheme activities such as working with the beekeeping cooperatives and through paid field work activities.
Currently, 54 people are directly long term employed through their work at the nursery, guarding, seed collection, vegetation and soil monitoring activities and 459 farmers (287 female and 172 male) report an increased income through the project.
Reason why we want to take this project out of GlobalGiving?
For the project of Seret, we will be working with large corporates that have committed for multiple years. As this area especially benefits from a steady income flow, we prefer to continue with other projects for our individual GlobalGiving givers, such as in Brazil, India and Zambia.
Want to stay in touch?
WeForest has various projects on GlobalGiving, including reforestation projects in Brazil, the Khasi Hills in India and in Zambia.
