About Hommes et Terre

Hommes et Terre is a Belgian-African company with a social vocation. Our mission is to develop and carry out the restoration of degraded land, ensuring that communities have sustainable access to fertile land. Our economic model is to develop and exploit these forests in combination with profitable and sustainable agroforestry, in an equitable collaboration with local communities.

 

Hommes et Terre undertakes actions that foster and strengthen social cohesion, through knowledge and an understanding of the socio-cultural situation in the regions covered.

 

Hommes et Terre achieves several UN Sustainable Development Goals through its ecological, economic and social impacts.

Vision

Climate change and human activity have transformed large areas of fertile land into barren land, resulting in famine, an influx of refugees and violent conflict. Hommes et Terre is convinced that the solution to this global challenge is to revitalise and develop the most fundamental relationship between humanity and the land. We want to restore the ecosystems with reforestation and agroforestry. It is our belief that if we can restore access to fertile land, we will also be able to restore the (local) economy and empower communities to build a profitable future. This will lead to positive and sustainable results for humanity and the land.

Values

Fairness

by taking responsibility and providing guarantees

 

Hommes et Terre is a company based on integrity, equality and responsibility. All outputs and impacts are monitored, valued and reported. Local communities are then more inclined to become the owners of fertile land, thus enabling all partners to review the progress and impact of the reforestation and agroforestry programme. The values promoted by Hommes et Terre therefore form the cornerstone of a sustainable development that benefits everyone.

Trust in humanity

by promoting self-reliance

 

Hommes et Terre is convinced of the potential for human development and of its strength. The company therefore focuses on ways to create a supportive environment for local people, as well as on reinforcing the processes. This entails setting clear objectives and achievements, punitive procedures and step-by-step time schedules, all while leveraging the best of the skills and knowhow of local communities.

Creative

by taking a leadership role

 

Hommes et Terre aims to make the reforestation and agroforestry sector more professional in a creative, reliable and sustainable way. It fully backs development – providing this is sustainable and fair. It also supports leadership – if this is inclusive and based on solidarity.

 

Hommes et Terre aims to become a long-term pioneer partner in the restoration, rehabilitation and validation of fertile soils.
