Replacing tree cover in the African Sahel is a race against time: the time required for trees to grow, against the rapid impacts that cutting trees brings to farmers and land is too long. African states in their quest for modern cities are embarking on deforestation. However, the value of the tree in our homes since ancient times is being shown with the arrival of COVID-19 which has reduced humans to confinement. Man needs the various virtues of these plants. (Eat, heal, refresh the space). The vision of the project is to encourage people to plant in each home, hence the name OPERATION: a House, a plant. One of the main objectives hidden behind the project in addition to combating climate change and contributing to the revegetation launched by the African Union is to improve comfort at home and contribute to reducing travel (case of the pandemic crisis). ). The project activities are in 3 phases: digital training, planting of seedlings and photo mosaic. It was a real success. 700 plants were planted, including 500 in rural areas by women's groups.
