Title: Reforestation project by village and school
150 small farmers and two schools in the area of Kpadape (Togo) are participating in this project. The agricultural community lives primarily from poultry farming. The size of farms varies greatly, which explains why some properties are better utilized than others. This project aims to sensitize small farmers to reforestation, to make contact with local authorities, to offer education and training, and to build a network. Reforestation serves to restore depleted soils and assures the availability of wood. In the long run, reforestation is anticipated to raise the income of the farmers and should translate ecological agriculture into practice.
