Salwa Osman Ebeid

 

Salwa Ebeid was the first woman to be employed by the United Nations Sudano- Sahelian office that aided the communities along the Nile River in Sudan through afforestation and reafforestation projects. This project at the outset was hindered by the traditional obstacle of not allowing male project staff to work with women. Through Ebeid's work, this isolation of women was overcome and women's communities were established in all villages. Women are now actively involved in reafforestation projects resulting in the reduction of sand-drifting and the increase of environmental awareness.Salwa Osman Ebeid
