Who we help
About two million people live in and around the argan forest area and depend on the forest for their livelihoods. Argan oil production has given the opportunity to paid work to women who have not been able to seek employment before due to cultural reason.
What we do
The argan forest is threatened by deforestation through overuse and overgrazing by goats and other animals. We work to protect the forest so the people and the animals in the area can continue to live where they have lived for centuries.
How we do it
We cultivate, plant and grow trees with active participation from the local population who will be the main beneficiaries of the project. Training, workshops and literacy classes for women is also a great part of the project.
