Green TVET – Tree Nursery Establishment In Madagascar

Green TVET – Tree Nursery Establishment in Madagascar

Agroforestry plays a vital role in the socio-economic development of communities, as trees planted on farms provide timber, fodder, fruits, medicine, windbreaks, and a whole range of other economic and environmental benefits. To meet present and future demand for planting material, there is a need to promote on-farm tree nurseries. Therefore, Don Bosco TVET centres in Madagascar through the Don Bosco Tech Africa’s Green TVET project are currently establishing tree nurseries with indigenous trees and fruits. These nurseries are owned and managed by Green Club members at the centres. They will provide income-generating opportunities, act as models for further nursery development, provide seedlings more cheaply to the centres, and will raise the particular species that local people are interested in. This project is funded by BMZ through Don Bosco Mondo and implemented through Planning and Development Office (PDO) in Madagascar.
