In the district of Amanit, a small agricultural center is located in the May Huwo (Ethiopia) catchment. In the dry season, people have to fetch drinking water from the May Zegzeg river, which requires a walk of more than four hours. Ethiotrees aims to restore and reforest this limestone catchment, in order to rise the local groundwater table. This will strenghten the temporary spring in the May Huwo cave, delivering more drinking water to the village in the driest months and years. In 2017, the upper slopes of the catchment were also added to the project area.
