TreeSisters fund tropical reforestation projects across 12 locations in Brazil, Borneo, Cameroon, India, Kenya, Mozambique, Madagascar, Nepal and West Papua. Their reforestation projects are ethical and community led, they expand natural forest cover and aim to avoid further deforestation.
So far they have funded the planting of over 15 million trees, and their goal is to plant 1 billion trees annually. We are delighted that our donation will directly fund the planting of 875 trees.
TreeSisters stood out to us as their projects support local communities and focus on gender parity and the participation of women. They explore what it would be like if there were more woman taking leadership roles in respect to the environment, and they provide training and support to encourage this.
Their work combines four of today’s big issues: gender, climate, behaviour change and ecological restoration. You can read more about TreeSisters’ projects, their values and how to support them here.
