Tree Aid www.treeaid.org has partnered with the UN Convention to Combat Desertification to grow trees across the drylands of Africa. The aim is to develop the Great Green Wall. Our donations contribute towards providing local communities with the expertise to plant, nurture and cultivate trees which provide nuts and fruits and help people out of poverty whilst also protecting their environment. Trees are essential to improve the soil, protect against erosion, increase biodiversity and help combat the effects of climate change. The work of Tree Aid is carried out throughout the drylands of Africa in Burkina Faso, Ghana, Mali, Niger and some parts of Ethiopia.
TREE AID helps people in the drylands of Africa to lift themselves out of poverty and protect their environment. People here live in some of the toughest conditions on earth and trees are essential to their survival. Trees provide nutrition, generate income and help to create a healthy environment. TREE AID works with local communities to help them protect and grow trees, for themselves and for future generations. Working across the drylands of Africa, we have planted over 17 million trees, supported 8 million people and all our work contributes to the Great Green Wall project.
