A Ghanaian proverb says “Ahaban y3 nkwa” which translates, “Vegetation is Life”. Ghana is known for its diverse animal life, Ghana has lost more than 30% of its forests – approximately 2.5 million hectares. With a remarkable 80% of Ghanaians depending on forests for their livelihoods, deforestation has an adverse impact on communities. To reverse this trend, AgriWoman is focused on improving land management, planting trees, and protecting forests. Help Ghanaians understand the importance of sustainable forestry for the long-term health of the economy and natural resources.
Trees improve soil health by protecting it from wind and rain, absorbing water, and building stability with their root structures. Planting trees in Ghana will help create young, resilient forests that can absorb carbon, clean the water and air, and recover from fire, drought, and flooding.
