We sow the future

Since the early 1990s, Ghana has lost more than 30% of its forests – with severe consequences for the people. From desertification and a loss of income to the radicalization of the local population by islamist extremists, all this leads to the destruction of the habitat.

Our Project counters the rural exodus of the young population by creating growth and prospects, so that the young people stay.

The project budget is 60,000 Euro, which equals 6 Ghanaian Cedis or 1 Euro per seedling.

A joint project with sustainable prospects

Children and teenager of selected schools and educational institutions will be involved in this reforestation project; as will their families, the local forest industry and the most important decision-makers on site. That creates cohesion.

The joint and collaborative character of the project has an additional effect: it prevents people from the feeling of being left behind. That deprives local islamist extremists of their breeding ground
