Project Summary / Description:
The project combines climate protection with sustainable development. The people protect and maintain the reforestation through their benefit from the PRoject. Through the training and involvement of women, their role is strengthened. By harvesting fruits (when the trees have grown) all people of the surrounding villages benefit by improving their nutrition in their health care.
How Project Affects Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions:
We implement projects that combine the planting of fruit trees and solar energy, education and other elements that combine climate protection and sustainability.

Impact on Underrepresented Groups:
Since the project is implemented in Africa, black people benefit from project. Especially women in rural areas benefit several times from the project: 1. through the training measures your education and yields from agriculture and reforestation increase, 2. through the harvest of fruits and the associated improvement of nutrition increases the health of women (of children and poor people as well), 3. through activities in the women's sport "Nzango", the exchange of women, your health and your self-esteem is increased. The project also benefits young people who find employment in the planting and care of the trees. In addition, the people of the surrounding villages in the rural areas benefit from the harvest of fruits in their diet and by selling the surplus in the larger cities.

Measurement, Reporting & Validation
The Zenaga Foundation is an organization that promotes sustainability through actions, projects and the dialogue and transfer of knowledge and technology. In Germany and Europe we create added value for people, companies and communities through actions, communication and support services. By participating in the UN Climate Change Conference and other events, we bring our knowledge and experience in climate protection and sustainable development. We accompany or organize targeted delegations and thus create networking and international understanding. In developing countries such as Senegal, Nigeria, DR Congo, Uganda we implement projects which combine in a unique way climate protection with a benefit for the people, and thus combine several benefits, e.g. reduction of flight causes, development of economic cycles, education, health, empowerment of women and other disadvantaged groups.
