The International Tree Foundation (ITF) have been successful in being awarded a grant by the Big Lottery Fund for their 'Trees 4 Livelihoods' project in Mali. In July and August 2012 I supported their application to BLF.
I have felt privileged to be involved with developing this excellent project, which will be implemented by ITF's local partner, Sahel Eco. Andy Egan, ITF's new director, wrote to me in February with the news: "I thought you might like to know that our Stage 2 Application to BLF for the Trees 4 Livelihoods programme has been successful. So thanks again for your guidance."
I wish the project every success!
