Charcoal Production

Production of charcoal and collection of fuel wood for household and energy needs are practiced throughout area (mainly by women), which has led to extensive deforestation in the project areas, resulting in soil erosion and fertility decline. We are committed to helping slow and even reverse this trend.

Instead of seeing the land stripped of more trees to use in charcoal production, we provide the women (at no cost to them) the roots and small limbs gathered in the clearing process for our jatropha fields. This way, the charcoal production process essentially becomes carbon neutral (as we will replace any roots or limbs removed with jatropha trees and no additional land will be cleared for use in charcoal production).
