Featured Partner Project

Food for Assets Project

Through CCFC, people in Ghana who earn less than $1 per day are receiving 300,000 seedlings to plant, along with technical support. They are learning about new and improved forestation technologies such as pegging, planting, and fire ride creation. This project is restoring more than 500 acres of degraded forest in Ghana. It is allowing participating communities to own woodlots so they can harvest wood in a sustainable manner, meeting their needs and earning an income.
