At Tree Aid, we do much more than simply planting trees. We use a combination of trees, tools and training, to ensure that our projects have a truly sustainable and long-lasting impact.
Supporting communities, and women in particular, to earn a sustainable income is a key part of our work in Ghana. It is known as our Enterprise Development Approach.
