Awaken Trees in Senegal
Since 2023 we have been supporting initiatives of farmers in Senegal, West Africa.
We support a local group of volunteers called JEBBI in Senegal, Kaffrine Region. Together we are spreading knowledge about Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration and are providing advice to farmers which are already practicing this methode.
In 13 communities of the region we help farmers to regenerate trees on farmland. In addition, we train people who have the task of fighting bushfires. Community elders, farmer leaders and women groups are joining our movement.
Many families in the Kaffrine Region could already double their crop yields through FMNR. Through our work we want to continue to improve soil fertility and food security in the region.
