Since the project started the organization has managed to convert 40 million hectares into green lands which has been providing an additional 500,000 tons of grain per year. This is enough to easily feed 2.5 million people. People have estimated that if the project is a success then it might even solve Africa’s food problems.

8How people are participating

People all across the land have been joining the movement via ‘Green Jobs’. It is an initiative that pays people who plant trees. Not only that if people wish for job security and a steady pay they can permanently join the initiative and become members. This is a great way to stabilize the economy while proving jobs for the people.
