Root for Change

Globally, countries in the drylands of Africa are hardest hit by the effects of the climate crisis, despite contributing to it the least. Weather patterns are becoming more erratic and droughts and floods are becoming more frequent and severe. The dry season is lasting even longer, meaning crop die and people struggle to grow enough food to eat and sell.

Will you join us and Root for Change this Christmas? You can support communities across the Sahel to build resilience to the effects of the climate crisis, and grow the roots for a better, greener future.

Baata's Story

Baata lives in Ghana with his wife and children. He is living on the frontline of the climate crisis, and told us how changing weather conditions are affecting his farming and ability to grow crops. 

The Root for Change appeal will support more families like Baata's to build climate resilience. For the people we work with, trees mean stability. Their roots stop soil and nutrients being washed away in floods and store water for the dry season, helping crops to grow. Roots are the support system for trees, absorbing nutrients and storing water to make each tree thrive.
