TREE AID is an international development organisation which focuses on unlocking the potential of trees to reduce poverty and protect the environment in Africa.
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. Since 1987, TREE AID has been working in remote and isolated communities in Africa. Here, the environment is declining and people are living in poverty. They have little food, money or opportunity to improve their lives.
TREE AID has internationally-recognised expertise in preventing deforestation and promoting sustainable development. We help communities to plant and protect trees to grow their way out of poverty and protect their environment, for now and for future generations.
The trees they grow help to create more stable local environments. This reduces the risk of flooding and drought and breaks the cycle of poverty and hunger.
We work with partners at all levels, from village to government, to make sure the voice of the poorest is at the centre of forestry policy.
We have helped more than 1.2 million people plant more than 17 million trees.
