Why do we
The complex problem of deforestation, land degradation, and global warming has led to an increase of dry and infertile land in many African countries. There are millions of living tree stumps in farmlands, grazing lands and degraded forests in Africa with the potential to re-grow into trees, if they are given the chance.
These forgotten tree stumps are brought back by using a technique called Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration (FMNR), or – as we like to call it in Tanzania – Kisiki Hai (‘living stump’ in Swahili).
By regenerating those trees, we are able to restore the degraded areas and make these areas green and cool again.
