The Olympic Forest in Senegal

The project with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) aims to grow over 589,000 trees and restore huge areas of land across Mali and Senegal, contributing to the Great Green Wall initiative.

The IOC visited Senegal late last year to plant a symbolic native tree at the future Youth Olympic Village in Dakar.

This celebrates the first phase of tree-planting activities for the Olympic Forest in Senegal and Mali, where 70,000 seedlings have already been planted.

News from Mali

We have recently expanded our She Grows project in Mali’s neighbouring Koulikoro region.

The project will help support 1,000 women to improve their economic and social status.
