The Upper East region of Ghana is one of the most degraded parts of the country. Due to the effects of the climate crisis, soil that was once fertile can no longer support plant life.
The people we work with rely on the land for food and income. As a result, it is becoming more difficult to grow food and poverty is increasing. That’s why we are working with communities to grow trees and build enterprises that give them income today and stability for the future.
This project is being implemented by Tree Aid in collaboration with the local implementing partner, ORGIIS Ghana, and with funding from Jersey Overseas Aid (JOA).
