The great potential of agroforestry

When we talk about agroforestry, two main configurations are possible. The first one is to plant trees (in line) inside plowed and cultivated agricultural plots in a sustainable manner. The second one is to make cohabit trees and pets. Thus, the profitability of lands is improved because of a better organization.

In the case of the Wordcoo project located in Dindefelo’s Natural Reserve (Map), the electrical equipments required will be used to organize the agroforestry. They are absolutely necessary because the project consist also in building a school. Then, they will be able to manage natural resources in the best way (without waist), they will improve the food security, and they even will contribute to the endangered chimpanzee’s survival in the region.

All these developments will make Dindefelo a reference in West Africa for biodiversity.

They require electrical equipment

The Jane Goodall Institute has a nice program to complete. Indeed, the association wants to create a center of research and training for Agroforestry Dindefelo School of the Community. Therefore, they need certain materials in particular.

Already funded some extent, part of the project has already been completed. It is the construction and structural work part. Now, to achieve their goal, they must equip school with electrical equipment.

In its budget, the project provides a very important part dedicated to energy. This is due to the fact that electrical installations are necessary for people to benefit from the basic equipments. We thus find in the list of stuff : solar panels, batteries, regulators, transformers, and various electrical installations.

Benefiting people are in full work, they can finally enjoy new equipment, but they still lack electrical installation. Help them to realize the project by talking about them and supporting the project on Worldcoo.

The West Africa’s Fouta Djallon region

As you may know, the Solar equipment for the Agroforestry School of the Dindefelo Community project is located in southern Senegal. But, its impact area is much bigger. In fact, the project aims to preserve apes in all the Fouta Djallon region. That’s why Jane Godall Institute recently decided to name the school as Fouta Djallon Biological School.

Fouta Djallon covers the western African nations of Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Senegal. The majority of people live in Middle Guinea and they speak a Niger-Congo language called Futa Jalo.

The region consists mainly of rolling grasslands, at an average elevation of about 900 m. Erosion by rain and rivers has carved deep jungle canyons and valleys into the sandstone. It receives a great deal of rainfall, and the headwaters of three major rivers, the Tinkisso River (major upriver tributary of the Niger), the Gambia River and the Senegal River, have their sources on it. Some authors also refer to Fouta Djallon as the Switzerland of West Africa.

Here, in this amazing environment, we find one of the biggest chimpanzee’s reserves in West Africa, and the Fouta Djallon Biological School mission is to preserve its natural biodiversity.

The school will start its activities very soon. Thanks to the help provided by the Universidad de Alicante, the construction is almost done, and now, one of the few remaining points is the solar equipment needed for the electrification.
