Support our Climate Champions Appeal

Seasonal news headlines continue to forewarn us of the serious threat that climate change poses to our planet – drastically affecting the environment, human life, and wildlife. Whilst we experience unseasonal heatwaves in the UK as a result, the consequences of the climate crisis are far worse in the Sahel where Tree Aid work. As a sub-Saharan region with some of the hottest conditions on earth, rising temperatures and unpredictable weather patterns are making communities’ lives more vulnerable and unsafe. Flash flooding, forest fires and prolonged droughts are destroying crops, making it harder for local people to grow enough food to feed their families or provide an income. Hunger and poverty are increasing across the region, affecting millions of people across the Sahel.

Our latest appeal is helping local people, Climate Champions, to tackle the interlinked challenges of poverty, climate change and biodiversity loss in the drylands of Africa. By providing tools, training and knowledge, Tree Aid is helping Climate Champions to find long-term solutions that protect their food and income opportunities, as well environment for future generations.
