‘’For many years, I have been engaging in farming food crops to take care of my family but I always lacked support to diversify my income. Now with this agroforestry project, I am integrating fruit trees and cashews and soon I will be able to secure a good future for my children.”

“In the past, organizations made empty promises. I couldn't believe it when I received my mango seedlings. The opportunity for women participation, access to training and tree seedlings is a great achievement of the project. In a few years, I will be selling my mangoes to pay my children's school fees”
Monica Nkrumah, a farmer in Mframa.
