Community Forests International creates solutions for the climate, forests, and rural communities. We know that some of our biggest challenges are also opportunities for growth. Community Forests International promotes climate-smart rural development, implementing projects that introduce, support, and commercialize appropriate technological innovations intended to enhance livelihoods in the face of climate change.
The effects of climate change severely exacerbate the challenges women face as primary providers of household needs. In Tanzania, women are often responsible for providing food, water, and energy to households in rural areas and are more dependent on natural resources than men due to unequal access to assets and income.
These intensive kitchen gardens provide families with an immediate source of nutritious crops. Our talented team on Pemba Island provides training and support to women to build kitchen gardens, helping them growing a variety of fruits and vegetables to feed their families and sell at market.
