Ghana is a country in West Africa, similar in size to the UK. In northern Ghana, where Tree Aid has been working since 1994, people’s daily lives and livelihoods are devastated by a drastic reduction in fertile land and the climate crisis. People are struggling to grow enough food and poverty is increasing. Around half of the people living in northern Ghana are living in poverty.
Our projects in Ghana are working to change this.

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.
