Niger

Niger

Niger, a large country in West Africa, is one of the world’s poorest countries. The climate is very hot and dry, and most of the country is desert. As a result, over two-thirds of the population are living in extreme poverty.

Since 2013, Tree Aid has been supporting communities to tackle poverty and improve the environment.

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.
