Marre Kena (wife), age: 65 (green pullover) on the land of her and her husband, Dangarsa Korzhe, age: 67 (tall with big hat, in the middle, background)
They’ve planted Koso trees around the farm to help prevent soil erosion and Anka trees in the farm to help with fertilization of the soil and water retention.
Dangarsa and Marre were also beneficiaries of the incentives (a form of Payment for Ecosystem Services) for participating and implementing the tree planting initiative in their farms. With their incentive they bought an Ox that was later sold to offset graduation costs and ceremony for their son.
