The village Dom, with a population of 1,500, that is located in one of the seven divisions that make up the North West Region of Cameroon, will receive 50,000 trees in their degraded community forest. The project will improve water infiltration and thus increase the volume of water in the pipes that has since 2002 dropped to less then half its 1980 size. It will also reduce erosion minimizing the silting up of pipes resulting from the flash floods that occur in the rainy season. The project will train 20 youth to be nursery caretakers and also use community members to outplant the seedlings.
This project was supported by our corporate partner, the Alcoa Foundation.
