Thank you for your support
THE AMHARA PROJECT IN ETHIOPIA
In the Amhara region, like in many areas of Africa, farmers mostly see forests as a resource for timber and fuel wood, resulting in high levels of deforestation and severe soil erosion. We work together with them, to improve their livelihoods with alternatives that do not destroy the forest. They then become our best local ambassadors to protect the forest in the long term.
The project currently employs 44 permanent staff members, working as forest experts, site facilitators and nursery workers. Furthermore, 550 casual workers are in charge of the nursery support, planting and site maintenance.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT
Thanks to some funding, we are able to ensure the longevity of the project. Therefore, we wil emove this porject from GlobalGiving.
