TREE AID is enabling communities in Africa's drylands to fight poverty and become self-reliant, while improving the environment.
TREE AID is the UK's only forestry focused development charity providing funding and on-the-ground training and support to local organisations in the Sahel of Africa.
TREE AID's work, which also strengthens villagers' resilience to the impact of climate change, has never been more important.
TREE AID was established as a charity in 1987 by a group of foresters in response to the famine in Africa, brought to public attention by Band Aid and Live Aid.
They wanted to provide a long term solution once the emergency relief efforts ended. They believed that trees could significantly reduce the vulnerability of communities in rural Africa's drylands to drought and famine in the future.
Our current strategy expands on the original concept, focusing on forest management and income, food and medicines from trees.
