Trees mean business

In Mali, trees mean business.

 

The fruits of the tamarind tree are processed, turned into a sweet nutritious syrup, bottled and sold by women, generating important income.

 

Training in how to improve their processing, the quality of the product, and packaging and marketing all add more value.

 

This means more income for the very poorest families, so they can afford heatlhcare and education for their children.
