Mansour Ndiaye
Agroforestry Expertr and Executive Director of Executive of the AVF-Sn association (Afrique Verte et Fertile Senegal)

During this period, thanks to the vision of Mansour Ndiaye, the NGO APAF Senegal intervened in several regions of the country to promote agroforestry using 'Fertilitarian' Trees in rural areas.

After 7 years of service, he left APAF Senegal to create with a group of agricultural producers from the Senegal river valley (in Ndiarème walo) the association AVF-Sn ('Afrique Verte et Fertile' Senegal) of which he is currently the Director executive.
