Self-sustaining Farmers

*Valley of Ali, Afghanistan

Seven years ago, many farmers never knew about hybrid poplar trees, and now they have become self-sustainable. By distributing our poplar cuttings in many different areas, we demonstrated how farmers can obtain and plant fast-growing hybrid poplars.

During the last year, our hope for this project location was for more people to benefit and prosper. Similarly, the local government planned to promote trees, because this environment was almost destroyed in the last decades. We had good coordination with the government to promote poplars in Yakawlang District.

Thank you,
The GHNI-Afghanistan Team
