With the other Climate Freaks, you show the most dedication to fighting climate change in Burkina Faso.
You plant four trees of different species. Once mature, these trees capture more than 60 kg of carbon dioxide per year! In addition, you are supporting 4 farmers towards the transition to sustainable agriculture who provide higher yield and healthy soil for sustainable livelihoods.
What happens with your contribution?
Now you are probably asking yourself "good idea, but what happens with my €60?" We are spending €20, - so that the farmer can plant four trees. To stimulate ownership among farmers, we use a voucher system where farmers choose the tree species they plant. When farmers choose their own trees, they take better care of them and increases responsibility. Hereby, we make sure that your trees are being taken care of in the long run.
Now you're probably thinking "okay, but what about the remaining €40?" Good one, we are reserving €20, - for the NGO Shalom, which trains farmers in sustainable agricultural practices. Another €20 is used for organic bio intrants for farmers, such as neem oil as a biopesticide and biofertilizer.
