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.
TREE AID’s She Grows appeal will support women in Mali to grow themselves, and their families, out of poverty while reversing the effects of deforestation and climate change.
