From farmer to farmer
We train farmers (male and female) on regenerating trees on community land and farmland. These so-called "Champion Farmers" share their knowledge with their entire village community. We support them in creating demonstration plots and organize visits to communities that are already successfully practicing FMNR.
We distribute wood-saving stoves, introduce savings groups, hold agricultural courses and create additional sources of income. As a result, the population is no longer dependent on cutting down trees to sell firewood.
The program currently includes 2 drought-affected communities in the Upper East Region. Our work aims to combat food shortage and to improve the quality of life - especially for around 400 women, who are the focus of the project.
ECO clubs for students
Together with our project partner FONAR, we work in 15 schools in northern Ghana. In the context of creatively designed school clubs, the youth sensitized to regreening. In addition, each Eco Club undertakes various community activities, such as growing trees on community land.
Trainings for teachers
In workshops lasting several days, teachers and headmasters acquire extensive knowledge about regenerating trees. Pedagogical methods are also practiced in order to pass this awareness on to the younger generation in the best possible way.
For a message to reach society, it must be conveyed through all possible channels. Our story of hope reaches a wide audience in the form of posters, theater plays, demonstration plots and gatherings.
