For many people in northern Ghana, the Daka river is a vital source of water for drinking, washing, cooking, and farming. But a rapid loss of trees and soil fertility, and the effects of the climate crisis, mean that the water level is low and the river dries out for months on end.
For local people, this makes growing enough food difficult. As a result, many people are living in poverty. But trees offer a solution. Through this project we are growing trees to restore the river and land, for now, and the future.
