Welcome to infosync Forest
“It is almost three years now since we planted at this place. Seeing the growing trees reminds me that the lost greenery will soon return. I’m hopeful to see some birds, chameleons and squirrels that we used to play with. I am really proud of my work and I want to help more people in my place with trees which I can personally raise with the skills I learned.” ~ young Shakila from Usambara, Tanzania.
Mr. and Mrs. Tomas above definitely blew us away with their passion for reforestation. They lived on a bare mountain with nothing, I mean nothing growing, the first time I visited them in 2010. The entire mountain was just rock and they begged me for help. They kept pulling out their pockets and showing me that they are empty. I said, “All I can offer are trees.” And Tomas said he’ll take trees. So over the next two years I saw his mountain transform right through two droughts from lifeless to what you see here. His property spreads way behind the house and he planted and watered all that we offered: mangoes, lemons, oranges, grapefruits and hardwoods. He was a nobody who became an example for all the village. Today their basic needs are met by what the trees provide. Many are very tall now like in some of the other pictures below.
