Challenge

The massive loss of tree resources is one of the direct causes of flash flooding, soil erosion, poor soils and poor crops, poverty and the disappearance of flora and fauna associated with biodiversity in the uplands. There is indeed an urgent need for local villagers to undertake tree growing activities in a concerted manner in order to reverse this condition.

Solution

Tree growing is not just mainly tree planting and then to leave the newly planted seedlings to their elements. Survival in this manner is very low and the need to focus more on educating farmers to take care of planted trees is a must. We shall do this for this initiative in order to ensure the survival of planted trees and improve the biodiversity of the land.

Long-Term Impact

The well-being of local villagers is tied hand in hand with the well-being of the land by which they live and subsist. The need to take care of the land by improving biodiversity is a must. Improvement of biodiversity will also enable local villagers to improve their incomes and general welfare.
