We work with people in the drylands of Africa. Led by local people, our approach focuses on four key areas, working to tackle poverty and the effects of the climate crisis by growing trees, improving incomes, and restoring and protecting land.
Our projects make sure trees thrive so they can provide food and incomes today and protect the environment for tomorrow.
We grow trees to protect the environment. We support people to use trees to improve the fertility of the soil and sustainably manage land in a way that helps them deal with the effects of the climate crisis.
This is our natural resource management approach.
We grow trees for long-term change. We campaign for forests to be managed by the people who depend on them. We work with communities and local government so they can agree rules for using forests and their resources.
This is our forest governance approach.
We grow trees which grow businesses. We support communities to make and sell tree products, like shea butter and soap. The income they make from their businesses pays for essential healthcare and education.
This is our enterprise development approach.
We grow trees for healthy food, all year round. Trees provide nutritious fruit, nuts and leaves, giving people stable supplies of food even when other crops fail.
This is our food security and nutrition approach.
