Main activities
  • Rectifying degraded soils through appropriate techniques
  • Training farmers in the production of compost
  • Training villagers in the protection and maintenance of tree plantations
  • Setting up a nursery
Beneficiaries

The direct beneficiaries are the people of the target villages whose number is estimated at about 6 000 people. The beneficiaries are represented through Village Development Committees and women’s unions.

Budget

The total budget is set at € 105 000 for the period 2016 to 2018, so € 35 000 per year.
