Agroforestry : the next generation get involved

February 19, 2021

Approximately 80 young people from the high school and the marching band regularly participate in the various activities of production and maintenance of the seedlings of the experimental farm in the community we support in the Central Plateau. In the field, they take care of fruit trees such as orange, papaya, coconut, or mango trees as well as forest trees such as cassia or cedar.

They take part in:

  • the preparation of the medium (a mixture of soil, sand, and manure) used to grow the seeds;
  • bagging the seeds;
  • watering and caring for the seedlings.

These activities are part of the high school’s introduction to technology and productive activities program, which consists of both practical and theoretical classes held on Thursdays each week.

The new academic year 2020-2021 started exceptionally late in early November 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

With this program, we ensure that we stay on track towards the goal of eliminating hunger, achieving food security, improving nutrition, and promoting sustainable agriculture as defined in the United Nations’ sustainable development goals.
