Like this edition’s Farmer story from Kenya, our Script of the Week focuses on the benefits of reforestation. 

Disasters such as bush fires, floods, storms, and locust infestations destroy both plant and animal life. As in every other business, farmers need to understand how to revive the land and ensure food security when disasters strike.

The following script is a short drama about a group of farmers in the Abinmma forest range in Ghana. These farmers started to reforest land which had been destroyed by bush fires, clearing land for farming, tree felling, and overgrazing. The drama is based on the real experience of a group known as the Asubimma Forestry Group.

You may wish to use the ideas and themes in this script to produce other programs, for example a radio drama or a discussion piece, to suit the needs and situation in your area.
