Kartong Community Forest

GAMBIA | Monday, 9 June 2008 | Views [844] | Comments [1]

After what seems like an age of planning, writing, phone calls and e-mails, today I finally set off for The Gambia. I've travelled there before, in 2005, overland from the UK in a beat up truck across Morocco, Western Sahara, Mauritania and Senegal. Im going back because whilst there I visited the Kartong Community Forest, a project which the International Tree Foundation and I had raised some funds for. But money isn't everything. The community required technical expertise too. Much as though I would have loved to stay in the Gambia and work on this, my employer and family would have been less amused. So I set about making sure that if I could not do it, someone else could. Together with the ITF and the University Of Cumbria we will be reporting back with our progress and will introduce you to the Kartong Community Forest... Watch this space!
