Modern Integrated Farming center.

The main objective of this project is to contribute to the restoration of land degraded by farmers and certain mining companies in the Lower Coast as a first step, because we are social entrepreneurs and ambassadors for environmental protection and sustainable development in Guinea.

An initiative of CENTRE AGRI INNOV SARL

Overview of the project

Centre de l’Agriculture Intégrée Moderne-CAIM (Modern Integrated Farming center)

www.centreagriinnov.com is an innovative project that provides concrete and important solutions related to youth and women unemployment in rural areas to a large extent, rural exodus, brain drain, illegal immigration, climate change and restoration of areas degraded by human beings.
The main mission of this centre is to produce various trees for reforestation, give professional advice in the design and implementation of projects of integrated agriculture and environmental protection and promote healthy agricultural products nationally and internationally, training and coaching of young people of the said centre to contribute to the development of the country by giving them practical and theoretical knowledge, while respecting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
In 2019, we decided to formalize our company CENTRE AGRI INNOV SARL at the Agency for the Promotion of Private Investments in Guinea (APIP) to have credibility, visibility and more positive impact at the national and international level. Today, we have grown and planted more than 50,000 trees in degraded areas for some mining companies and individuals in the Republic of Guinea.

Qualitative results

We are a private company, we make nurseries of several trees for reforestation to sell to individuals, mining companies, local authorities, in short, to public, private and local companies at a very affordable price because, we are a social enterprise whose crucial goal is to contribute to making the world better for the present and future generations thanks to our various training courses followed in the field of sustainable development in Guinea and abroad.
Thanks to this project we have perfected our skills in sustainable project management, followed quality trainings in Switzerland (Geneva), Ghana (Accra) and the United Arab Emirates (Dubai), and we are contributing to make the world a better place for the present and future generations

No country can develop without agriculture in rural areas, involving youth and women. Real development is participatory development by communities and for communities, in order to combat unemployment, rural exodus, brain drain, illegal immigration, undernourishment and malnutrition. Finally, promote and encourage the culture of living for life: consume what you produce and produce what you consume.
