The She Grows project got underway in February 2020. The project began with a baseline survey to measure participants’ living standards. The survey focuses on indicators such as household income, fuel-wood usage, dietary diversity, use of trees and forests, natural resource management techniques and women’s decision-making powers.
Once the baseline study was completed the next phase of the project began. Ten communities are being supported to plant 5,000 seedlings during the rainy season.
