Often, it is difficult for women to become involved in agroforestry systems because of cultural barriers. Better Globe Forestry understands these obstacles and works to cross cultural divides and allow women to participate in work.
In early December 2017, the Better Globe Forestry management team had the pleasure to introduce Rino, the Chairman of the Better Globe Group, to the farmers program in Dokolo. All in all it was quite a promising start!
In 1999, the Kenyan government put in effect a ban on loafing that went on for 13 years in all its established plantations. Ultimately, the ban did more harm than good, and plantations are still recovering from the effects of the ban.

Child Africa celebrated 25 years of enriching the lives of African children by having the Prime Minister in Uganda to officially open their new premises. The orchestra kept the music going through Kabale town and a big cake was made for the occasion.
During this rainy season in November and December, we distribute lots of tree seedlings to our contract farmers, since this is the best time to plant them. We have modified several of the pickup trucks so they can transport the tree seedlings safely.
It has been pretty hectic during rainy season where a lot of tree seedlings are distributed and planted. As a nice surprise, Better Globe received a Gazelle price for increasing the turnover by over 600 percent the past four years.
