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 can easily run low, and the river dries out for months on end.
For local people, this has made growing enough food difficult. As a result, many people are living in poverty. But trees offer a solution. Throughout this project we have grown trees to restore the river and the land for future generations.
