A partnership between S.E.E.F., ONGD O.S.B. (DR Congo) and the King Baudouin Foundation www.kbs-frb.be
This inclusive project aims to create awareness with local youth for deforestation and loss of biodiversity in the province of central Congo.
Faced with the big ecological challenges in their region, 100 underprivileged adolescents will get an intensive training in agro-forestry and be equipped as beekeepers and fruit growers, a catalyst to restore the local ecosystem.
Between 2021 and 2026, it is our intention to yearly insert 100 participants in planting and maintaining 25.000 fruit trees a year. Besides getting a revenue as fruit growers and beekeepers, they will get familiar with the cooperative idea, by:
(i) selling their own production
(ii) donate a part of their yearly production to our local partner OSB for the financing needs of future participants in the program.
