Our impact

Growing trees, restoring land and tackling poverty since 1987.

We work with communities to grow food and incomes, tackling poverty today. We help them to restore the environment and combat the climate crisis for the future. Since 1987, we have worked with communities in the Sahel to restore over 160,000 hectares of land and grow over 24 million trees. In fact, we grow one tree every 19 seconds!

Last year

Our projects provide food and income, tackling poverty today. They also improve the environment, tackling the effects of the climate crisis for tomorrow.

In 2020/21, we worked with nearly 700,000 people to grow over 2.6 million trees and protect almost 10,000 new hectares of land, all thanks to supporters like you. Read the full report to see the amazing impact we’ve had in 2020/21, thanks to supporters like you.

Our Impact Report 2020/21

Who we work with

We work with communities that rely on farmland for food and income. But a loss of fertile land and the effects of the climate crisis are making life tough and unpredictable. Too much or too little rain and poor-quality soil means there is not enough food for communities to eat healthily and afford essential healthcare and education.

As a result, the people we work live in poverty and are forced to get by on less than $1.90 per day. But we are working to change this.

The Great Green Wall

Tree Aid is working with communities across Africa to grow trees and restore land in support of the Great Green Wall movement. This African-led initiative envisages an 8,000km mosaic of restored land across the Sahel that will transform the lives of millions living on the frontline of the climate crisis.

Working in partnership

Our work is only possible because of a network of people and organisations who provide Tree Aid with fantastic support.

Thanks to our partners, we are led by local knowledge and share international expertise. We develop long-term partnerships, like our work with ORGIIS in Ghana over the last six years.

Tree Aid works with trusted partners that have specialised expertise and a clear understanding of local issues. Here are just a few of our partners.
