Reforesting South Sudanese refugee camps:

After a successful small-scale pilot which demonstrated how community tree planting and tree care training can increase food security, WildFF piloted a reforestation project in two zones of the Palorinya refugee settlement in Northern Uganda.

WILDFF APPROACH:  Palorinya is the second largest refugee camp in Uganda, home to more than 180,000 South Sudanese refugees. In partnership with Moyo district forest office, a tree nursery was built in the settlement and 120,000 seedlings were planted, including moringa, jackfruit and fast-growing timber species. Once the trees are ready for harvest, about 100,000 refugees will have access to sustainable food sources and firewood. An area of 267 acres has been reforested through our efforts.
