This reforestation initiative is working with local communities to restore native forests across the landscape at a number of sites across Malawi. In many village areas the need for fuel wood forces local people, often women, to walk long distances. This has led to forest degradation in nearby areas, fragmenting wildlife habitat and presenting hardships for local farming communities. That’s why your support will go a long way! This tree planting has a huge impact by not only restoring forests and all the benefits they bring to wildlife, watersheds, climate stability and more, but doing so in combination with sustainable development. This project will restore indigenous forest trees to the landscape in cooperation with communities while installing water wells and pumps, as well as fruit trees. Planting in combination with sustainable development goals tackles the roots of deforestation by taking pressure off mature trees and educating local women how to build fuel efficient clay brick stoves to save firewood and improve their lives.
