    A creative solution for farmers like Hinda

    Saving the Soil

    One of the hidden impacts of climate change is erosion, the farmers in Annayo told us. They’re worried about how increased erosion on their farms might impact them in the future – especially farmers with orchards.

    For those farmers, erosion can mean wiping out 50 year old trees that are producing hundreds of fruit, providing shade, and supporting their livelihood.

    “Because of the floods, my whole farm is at risk and my trees especially are at risk of washing away,” said Hinda Emli. “I would love if I could get support to stop erosion.”

    To help tackle this problem, we provided vouchers that farmers would be able to use to rent tractors that can be used to combat problems of erosion!

    The tractors can manipulate the soil in ways that help mitigate the impact of the shifting soil. It won’t solve all of their problems, but it’s a small way to prevent what we can!

    This change made possible by Mankind is My Business.
