What is your position in your company or organisation?
Africa and Caribbean Program Coordinator
What does your company of organisation do?
Trees for the Future, Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization based in Maryland. Our mission is to assist people living on the world’s most degraded lands to improve their living standards and the quality of their lives through development projects that also bring important ecological improvement.
In which African countries does your company or organisation operate?
David Tye advised me to contact you, about Trees for Africa's activities or plans in Ghana.
Jatropha Africa cultivates 100 Ha of Jatropha in the Brong Ahafo Region, and manages relationships with 50 smaller farmers. We have an Improved variety of Jatropha, which is high yielding and provides a good early crop.
We have sold these JA Improved Jatropha seeds to research centres in the UK, Italy and to a European oil company. However we would prefer to have an agreement for them to be supplied for use in Ghana, as part of a small farmer friendly programme.
We have a land use, jobs and profit sharing agreement with three villages in the Brong Ahafo Region.
We are interested in other tree varieties, beyond Jatropha.
I look forward to hearing more of Trees for the Future.
Kind regards - Clive Coker
