Our projects

Tree Aid works in the drylands of Africa to tackle poverty and the effects of the climate crisis.

Where we work

Our projects are focused in the drylands of Africa, in Burkina Faso, Ghana, Mali, Niger, and Ethiopia. Here, over 300 million people’s lives are devastated by the reduction in fertile land and the climate crisis. 

That’s why we are working with communities to grow millions of trees and protect huge areas of land each year. Led by local people, our projects make sure trees thrive so they can provide nutritious food and incomes today, and protect the environment for tomorrow. 

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.
