Limbi Blessing Tata – Irvingia

Date grant awarded: November 27, 2019

In Mungo, Cameroon, Limbi Blessing Tata is working to combat deforestation, which is leading to environmental degradation. Limbi is doing this through two approaches, by developing and sustaining a grassroots women run commodity value chain around non-timber forest products and working with youth to instill skills for entrepreneurship, self-employment, and job creation.

Through these approaches, beneficiaries will increase profit margins up to 400%, hence motivating individuals to protect the forests.
