International Arbor Day / 40,000 trees planted in Dirre Inchini

Around 9,000 people in Dirre Inchini are dependent on unclean water sources. 30% of these springs run out of water during the dry season. This is because the groundwater level drops. One reason: tree cover has been reduced from 100 to 25%, partly due to overgrazing in the hilly regions.

The WaterFoundation has therefore set up two tree nurseries for reforestation, which are mainly run by highly committed women. So far, 40,000 trees have already been planted: Fruit trees, fodder trees, fast-growing timber trees and native species. By the end of the project in 2025, there will be 500,000!
