Poplar Tree Success Impacts Village

*Valley of Ali, Afghanistan

The trees in the Valley of Ali look very beautiful in summer. Our staff members and local farmers taking care of the trees irrigate and give fertilizer every year in June.

It is also a model for the Yakawlang people. Many people from different parts of the Bamyan province come and see how these trees have been planted and what kind of soil is needed to make a poplar field. We demonstrate and distribute thousands of poplar cuttings to the farmers, and our staff members teach and guide the people how to plant them.

We see a huge change and impact within this village, because so many cuttings are being distributed every year.

Thank you,

The GHNI-Afghanistan Team
