An exciting new phase in Amhara

Our work in Amhara is now moving from Machakel to neighbouring Jabi-Tehnan (West Gojjam province).

The overall target of our restoration in Machakel (2017-2021) was to restore 739 ha of communal lands and ensure the sustainability of the forest areas in the future. To date, the project has planted and managed 803 ha (about 1.3 million trees) with the active participation of the local communities, which is 109% of our target!

The target for the new project is to scale up to ten times the size of the Machakel phase, restoring 10 000 ha of the Gewocha Forest and surrounding communal lands.
