Project success 
WROC Forestry Conservation Project 2010-2013


Our mandate was to build a number of Check Dams, Reforest the area, Train 100 farmers and to establish 4 model farms. The WROC Forest Conservation Project came out of the WROC EU/Sustainable Livelihood Banana Support Project that was implemented in two phase, phase 1 & phase 2. Hence, a study was done on the different communities and a project was written and submitted to the Forest Conservation Fund. It was approved for $20, 000.00 dollars . You might be saying why Somerset? Well, Somerset has been know for an area that is prone to land slippages. History is against them when it rains, and many fret and fear for their lives.
