Another busy quarter has passed and with your support. Due to heavy rainfall, our farmers were unable to plant any new trees in January, February and March, however, the rains allowed vital time to focus on the preparation of seedlings. The local farmers we work with were able to prepare some 400 Pinus, 100 Mizambarau Pori, 100 Simbaulanga, and 500 Acacia seedlings. The first quarter of this year also included the collection of new seeds, and plucking out in polythene bags, in addition to the propagation of fruit seedlings from grafts in Choma and Kisosa. 

We provided training for 90 farmers on the correct way to plant and care for young trees - their training focussed on agroforestry as part of a newly established carbon module. The farmers in attendance were from five differing villages (Ruvuma, Mgambazi, Tulo, Choma, and Kisosa) meaning they were able to disseminate their learning and skills within their local communities furthering the impact of this valuable project.

Your support for this project enables us to further work towards reduced greenhouse gases through the planting of even more trees and the conservation of tropical forests. In addition, your valuable donations work towards food security, poverty reduction, and the socio-economic development of participating farmers and communities.


With your continued support, we'll be able to reach our goal of planting 21,750 trees and educating 145 farmers and you can make your donation go further from TODAY until 29th April where there are $50,000 in matching funds available - that means we'll receive your donation + 100% more at no extra cost to you.

Remember that just...

$10 will plant ten trees
$25 buys training for local communities on tree nursery establishment
$50 can provide compensation for farmers to plant 1 acre of trees $90 buys training for local communities on forest management $150 will establish a tree nursery $200 can provide more than 200 trees for planting
$500 will fund the establishment of a tree nursery

Thank you so much on behalf of APOPO and Sustainable Agriculture Tanzania for all of your support.
