Burkina Faso

Burkina Faso

Burkina Faso is a country in the centre of West Africa. Most people living here depend on the land to grow food and make money. But land is rapidly losing its fertility and trees are being cut down. As a result, over one-third of the population are living in extreme poverty.

That’s why Tree Aid has been working with communities across the country since 1994.

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.
