Mali is one of the poorest countries in the world, where most people rely on the land for food and income. But in a country which is already two-thirds desert, the effects of the climate crisis are making farming even more unpredictable.
The Koulikoro region of Mali has been particularly affected by droughts and deforestation. As a result, the land is rapidly losing its fertility and it is becoming harder for people to grow enough food.
We were proud be partner with Timberland (www.timberland.co.uk) for this project, helping them to bring their 50 million tree commitment to life. We are working with a local partner, The Association for the Development of Promotion and Training Activities (ADAF/Gallé), to implement this project.
