150 peasants want to reverse the badly eroded land on their mountain. They will save lives by planting trees to stop mudslides and by training other peasants about reforestation to preserve the land
The mountain in Pochét is severely eroded due to over-planting of peanuts and deforestation, causing landslides so devastating that part of the mountain has slid into a ravine. This is a disaster on an ecological level. In order to save lives, their village and the mountain, drastic steps must be taken to protect the land. Members of the Pochét peasant group asked Lambi to help them reforest the area and train others on how to avoid future degradation.
Lambi will provide funds for 6 tree nurseries to raise 100,000 seedlings. With your help we will provide seeds, tools and training so that they can plant trees and train their community about ways to repair the degradation of the environment.
Lives will be saved by preventing future landslides. The mountain will be refurbished and become a flourishing ecosystem and a stable home to the residents of Pochét.
This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
