We Grow

Trees.

At a global scale, deforestation accounts for 11% of the total greenhouse gases emission, while massive reforestation of unforested areas could offset humanity’s greenhouse gases emissions. Not only do trees sequester carbon from the atmosphere and bring it back to the soil, but they also improve fertility, water retention and biodiversity.

Reforesting for more Biodiversity

Locally, one of the biggest threats to tree cover is charcoal, tobacco production and the collection of firewood. Raising awareness in the communities is critical to outbalance the unsustainable clearing of forested areas. In 2019, we taught a 15’000 youth on the vital importance of tree for human kind.

Agroforestry has the potential to reconnect forestation and agriculture, as farmers worldwide have long considered trees as the enemies of crops. However, when managed properly, trees improve crops’ yields by boosting soil fertility and water retention, and by increasing biodiversity at the local level.

Since 2017, we planted 15’000 trees every year, which totals to about 45’000. We distributed our trees in schools mainly, as we provided school children with teachings on the vital importance of trees for human kind. The teachings were accompanied with planting sessions, that served as practical trainings on how best to plant trees for an optimal survival rate.

Local resources for better living

How we work

Seeds and tree seedlings of indigenous species are collected with the help of the local community.

They are multiplied within our tree nursery, in order to produce hardy tree seedlings ready for plantation.

They are distributed free of charge to schools and individuals. The educational sessions we give them are aimed at ensuring the highest possible survival rate.

Why Do We Plant Trees?

Trees are at the root of any positive change within communities. While huge amount of trees could have the power to offset the greenhouse gas emissions of humanity, a small number of them can radically change people’s lives at the local level. They improve soil fertility, soil water retention, they provide medicine and firewood.

Indigenous tree species are multiplied within our tree nursery.

We teach youth on the importance of trees for human life and on how best to multiply them.

We hand over between 100 and 1,000 tree seedlings to each interested school and individual.

Our trees are planted with techniques that guarantee the best survival rates.
