Komaza - African microforestry, income-generating tree farms

From Site:

We partner with dryland famers to help them plant drought-resistant trees on unproductive land. They get seedlings and tools on credit plus training, post-harvest processing and access to new markets. We spend less than $1 to plant a tree. And each tree returns at least $20 to the family. That’s over $6,000 from half an acre.
Farmers rise out of poverty. The trees restore the environment and prevent deforestation. And each tree farm yields enough extra money to start nine new farms. KOMAZA will be able to achieve self-funded growth to more families.
