Your support could help women like Doli to grow thriving businesses selling sustainable tree products.
Tree Aid provides communities with the tools and training they need to restore their land, improve diets, and earn a sustainable income from trees.
For women living in poverty, it can be hard to access the tools and training required for their business ideas to really fly.
Tree Aid projects connect with local women's enterprise groups, finding out how best we can support their existing work to make running their tree product businesses a little easier.

Nutrition gardens are small communal village plots dedicated to cultivating fast-growing trees that produce leaves after just 3 months, such as moringa and baobab. These trees are highly nutritious and can be used fresh or dry for consumption and sale.
This means communities can harvest stable supplies of food all year round, even when other crops fail in difficult conditions. It also makes these products more locally accessible than when only picked in the wild.
Almost all parts of the moringa tree are edible, from leaves to roots. This fast growing marvel is highly resistant to drought, and packed with essential nutrients. All of these factors make it the perfect tree for the dryland regions of Africa's Sahel.
