What do TREE AID do?New Treeaid Logo 2

TREE AID helps villagers living in the drylands of Africa unlock the potential of trees to reduce poverty and protect the environment.

It works across Africa’s drylands, home to over 350 million people, where over half the rural population live in chronic hunger. These communities face some of the world’s harshest environments, but by using trees and agroforestry TREE AID help’s them build resilience to drought and famine and repair their damaged environment.



TREE AID’s vision is to see thriving, sustainable communities living across the drylands of Africa.

TREE AID believes that tackling poverty and environmental protection are inseparable – so it uses the potential of trees to break this cycle. It builds opportunities for communities, so that they can become self-reliant and invest in their environment.
