This Man Stopped The Desert

2 year ago · Marta · 0 Comment

This man is called Yacouba Sawadogo and he is an innovative African farmer. Yacouba has been traveling across the deserts for the last 30 years trying to revive the old soil conservation and  re-forestation techniques. He has been using only a shovel as a tool. The man has a firm belief that everything can be changed for the better. And the amazing results he achieved speak for themselves.

The story of Yacouba became known around the world, thus in 2010 he starred in a documentary called ’The Man Who Stopped the Desert.’ The proceedings were put into the restoration of local forests and also in a training program for farmers who wanted to learn Yacouba’s technique.
