Green Forest Social Initiative
In the year 2008, OSIENALA in partnership with Stichting Het-Groene Woudt (SHGW), a foundation based in Netherlands and International Child Support (ICS), came up with an integrated model combining; a commercial tree farming enterprise and a social initiative focusing on promoting small-holder tree farming, community livelihood projects and civic driven child development.
The project dubbed Green Forest Social Initiative (GFSI) was implemented by investing in the establishment of commercial tree estates on the trust lands, building factories as well as guaranteeing the market of products. Under this initiative, over one million trees were planted in Gwassi. Hundreds of hectares of the aloe gardens and over fifty tree nurseries were established. A secondary school was also constructed to promote education of the girl child.
