Mali

Mali

Two-thirds of Mali, a large country in West Africa, is desert. In the south of Mali where we work, most people rely on farmland for food and income. But climate change is making farming unpredictable and life tough. As a result, over a third of the population are living in extreme poverty.

We have been working with communities to tackle this since 1993.

The Great Green Wall

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.
