Fundraise between 12th April – 11th July and the donations you raise will be doubled by the UK government. Host a Tea for Trees virtual tea party or join together with friends to run, walk or cycle in the Great Green Walk. However you choose to fundraise, you will directly contribute to the Great Green Wall. All match funding from the UK government will go directly to the Future Forest project in Metema.
Please note that donations raised before 12th April will not be doubled by the UK government.
Across the drylands of Africa people are living on the frontline of the climate crisis. Temperatures are rising, trees are disappearing, the land is becoming infertile and the desert is spreading. People can’t grow enough food to feed their families and are being plunged deeper into poverty.
The Metema forest in northern Ethiopia is in the last green belt before the start of the desert. But without action, it could be extinct within 20 years. This will have a devastating impact on communities who rely on the forest for food and income. There will be no buffer between them and the encroaching desert.
Take part in the Great Green Walk:
Why not take part in our tea party, 'Tea for Trees' on 7th and 8th May? We’re asking you to get together (possibly virtually, depending on restrictions!) to drink tea, eat cake and donate however much you would have spent on a café trip with your friends.
Set up a JustGiving page and encourage your community to take part and donate.
