Great Green Walk

Your fundraising will have a big impact.

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. 

Why fundraise?

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.

Our projects

The funds you raise will mean we can work with communities to ensure they have the tools and training to grow and protect trees, enrich their environment and improve soil quality, so that they can live from the trees for years to come. 

The Great Green Walk

Take part in the Great Green Walk:

  • Form a team with friends, family or colleagues
  • Work together to walk, run or cycle 80, 800 or even 8,000km – the width of the Great Green Wall across Africa
  • Use an app like Strava to track each other’s progress – but remember to stick to any government restrictions in place
  • Set up your JustGiving page to raise your funds 

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.

“Tree Aid is a fantastic cause. They help vulnerable people, they help the environment, they help wildlife… there isn’t a box they don’t tick! I am honoured to support them.”
Rabbi Jonathan Wittenberg, Tree Aid supporter
