Shortly after we have received the first support from the Hand in Hand-fonds Ibrahim the project leader has launched a couple of stakeholder meetings and the first workshops with farmers. The goals that he had set with the Uwako farmer cooperative over the course of the last year were made more concrete. Areas where trees will be planted were chosen, as well as the tree species. Property and user rights were agreed upon and the first basin to save water for a tree nursery was constructed. Thus Ibrahim has motivated the participating villagers but also created quite some expectations that now the project activities will start. He hopes to be able to use the momentum and start the establishement of the first nursery before the coming rainy season. All he needs is, guess what, ha ha: money!
We welcome donations, thank you
