It’s time to plant in Togo! 50,000 young seedlings were distributed yesterday to 100 local families and farmers at our nursery of Kusuntu in the town of Kloto 1. #planttrees #carbonfootprint #reforestation
Environmental awareness raising is a part of our NGO’s charter. This includes activities in schools with active involvement of schoolchildren. Recently we delivered seminars in schools of Cotonou (Benin) about the protection of the environment and in particular protection of trees. #reforestation #environmentaleducation
Back to school in Madagascar with help of Graine de Vie. Each year we provide the necessary supplies to school pupils and the admin staff in the villages where we have tree nurseries.
It is just as important to protect the forest as it is to reforest it and that is also a part of our charter. Recently, together with the team from Madagascar National Parks, we were hard at work to create firewalls to protect 1,200 ha of forest in the Ambohitantely National Park. In 3 days we drew a firewall of 1.3 KM long and 15 m wide. #reforestation #forestconservation
While drinking Senseo’s coffee we now compensate for its footprint by planting trees. SENSEO’s sponsored nursery in Madagascar (Fokontany Vohidragnay, commune Tatao, district Manakara, region Fitovignany) has a forecast of 40.000 young trees to be planted this year.#senseo #reforestation #planttrees #carbonoffsetting
Our #reforestation method of direct seeding in Madagascar has shown great success over the years. And because Madagascar has favorable climate conditions, the results are visible in only few months. Here we see young seedlings grown from direct seeding activity 5 months ago (February 2022) in the village of Antolojahary, one of the villages of Father Pedro. #planttrees #carbonoffsets
All our teams are hard at work distributing and helping the population to plant the 850,000 tree seedlings from our 25 nurseries
We already deployed 6 tree nurseries producing 180.000 seedlings. In Benin we will launch several new projects with the help of the authorities and the local NGO CEDV.
Our Team visited Togo where we have already created 25 tree nurseries
After Madagascar, Togo, Benin and Cameroon, here are our first tree nurseries in Ghana.
Grainedevie, reforestation integrated into local life.
Help us to distribute useful tree seedlings free of charge to all those villagers who see their environment disappear.
Restoration day at the mangrove of the marine park of Nosy-Hara. Already 110.000 mangrove plants transplanted since 5 years by the women of the village in difficult conditions because of the mud.
A small summary of Grainedevie’s actions in Cameroon. Here you can see the tree nurseries(4) in CAMEROON in December 2020.
-1 Mbandjock department of haute sanaga
-1 kiiki department of Mbam inoubou.
-1 mbouda department of Bamboutos.
-1 Batcham Bamboutos department.
And the adventure continues.

with young plants coming from the Amber Mountain.
From December to this day, the number of transplants is
12 468, including 6 species of cash trees (Hintsina, Mandrorofo, Aramy, Mango, Papaya, Corrosol).
Distribution of two million seeds to the 61 villages of the Amoron’i Mania region for our direct seeding plantations.
A technique developed by Graine de Vie that consists of selecting, preparing, and then planting seeds directly into the soil.
Planting of 15,000 trees on Mount Passot which supplies fresh water to Nosy Be, Madagascar’s tourist showcase.
Beginning of the rainy season in Madagascar.
All our teams prepare to plant more than FIVE MILLION trees from our 222 nurseries.
Graine de Vie has been developing for 5 years a direct seeding tree planting technique which consists of selecting, treating and planting seeds directly into the soil and we are making great progress.
Here are tree seedlings of several species whose seeds were planted last April near Manakara (south-east of Madagascar) with a success rate of more than 60%.
This technique allows us to envisage the planting of several tens of millions of trees each year.
Graine de Vie started a reforestation project in Cameroon
To reduce the carbon footprint linked to the operation of its infrastructures, the Liège airport authorities are financing a program for reforestation of the Analamerana reserve in north-eastern Madagascar with the creation of tree nurseries in the villages surrounding the reserve and the planting of 120,000 trees each year. Two new nurseries were created this week.
The Graine de vie philosophy is to do reforestation directly with the populations of the villages that draw resources from the forest. After Madagascar and Togo, we are planting our first trees in Benin where we plan to create 5 nurseries this year.
In addition to the environmental aspect, our activities have a significant social aspect because:
1)- half of the trees we plant are trees that produce food resources for the daily life of inhabitants (fruit
2)- Graine de Vie employs not only full time but also temporary day labourers providing financial means to thousands of people during different phases of plantation: from production to tree planting (nurseries, fence making, seed harvesting, terracing, potting, transplanting, transporting seedlings, digging wells, etc.).
3)- Graine de Vie raises awareness of hundreds of thousands of people about the need to protect and restore forests to ensure a better future for humanity.
It was Arbor Day yesterday in Togo.
Through these photos, beyond the gaze of these people happy to plant trees, don’t you see the image of a world that can change?
Distribution of 340.000 seedlings by Graine de vie Togo.
We decided to be actors in the fight against global warming by creating nurseries in African communities that want to protect and restore their forests.
The rainy season has just started in Togo and the population is mobilizing to plant the 340,000 tree seedlings produced in our 30 nurseries.
We have a nursery and an awareness and reforestation project in more than one out of every four communes in Togo. Help us to create an identical project in all the communes of the country and thereby demonstrate that it is possible for humanity to reverse the trend of the systematic destruction of our environment.
For a better, fairer and more beautiful world.
TIME TO PLANT
Tree nurseries were opened by our team this week in the region of Betsiboka between Tana and Majunga. We have a lot of requests for help and partnership in the fokontany. Some pictures of the new nurseries
We distributed 100.000 meals to the confined in Madagascar. As we feared, COVID-19 arrived in Madagascar where the government imposed containment.
This is a tragedy for the poorest families who find themselves without resources and therefore without food.
We, therefore, decided to intervene and to use our contacts and our teams to distribute 5,000 packets to 5,000 selected families in the most precarious neighborhoods.
Each packet contains 5 kilos of rice, fruit and vegetables, oil and soap, and will enable a family to eat for 3 to 4 days.
At the end of this program more than 100,000 people will be able to eat decently for several days.
Help us to do more by donating your help to account BE60 0017 4158 3870 in the name of Graine de Vie.
Of course, each payment of at least 40 euros will give rise to a tax reduction of 45% of the amount.
Thank you for spreading this message around you.

First Graine de vie tree nursery has just been created in Benin in the capital Cotonou not far from the Abomey Calabi University.
4 days of activity from Wednesday 26th to Saturday 29th.
We put in fast-growing plants to reforest in June.
So far we have managed to plant 4000 of them. The Beninese association CEDV “Chaque Enfant à Droit à la Vie” will continue the work starting next week.
For this first year, we are going to set up nurseries of 500 trees for schoolchildren in about thirty schools and supply 2,000,000 seeds thanks to the bags of 5,000 seeds that we have developed for the direct sowing technique. 🌱.
Thousands of children will benefit from this program.
This collaboration is part of Graine de Vie’s objective for this year: “Raising awareness in schools on the problem of deforestation and the need for reforestation”.
