Tree Aid is proud to be 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.
The Great Green Wall is one of the most urgent movements of our time. In the Sahel region of Africa where we work, people live with the effects of the climate crisis every day. Land is rapidly losing its fertility. People can't grow enough food and poverty is increasing. Millions are forced to go hungry or, worse, flee their homes in search of employment.
By 2030, the movement aims to have restored 100 million hectares of land across the entire width of Africa. Tree Aid has already grown millions of trees and restored thousands of hectares of land, contributing to the Great Green Wall movement. But there is still more to be done.
With your support, we will work with more communities across the Sahel. We will grow even more trees and restore huge areas of land. Together, we will help transform the lives of millions of people living in poverty and suffering the effects of the climate crisis.
