For every 10 Timbergrams we sell, we plant a tree in Africa with the charity Tree Aid.
TREE AID was established as a charity in 1987 by a group of foresters in response to the famine in Africa. They believed that trees could significantly reduce the vulnerability of communities in rural Africa’s drylands to drought and famine in the future. Their current strategy expands on the original concept, focusing on forest management and income, food and medicines from trees.
TREE AID helps villagers living in the drylands of Africa unlock the potential of trees to reduce poverty and protect the environment. TREE AID believes that tackling poverty and environmental protection are inseparable. TREE AID helps villagers in the drylands of Africa unlock the potential of trees to break this cycle of environmental decline and poverty. They help create self-reliance for poor communities building not only their chances of survival but also their dignity and respect.
At the same time, TREE AID helps poor people invest in their environment, building its richness and health not just for today but for generations to come. It’s what they call a “two for one” solution that breaks the cycle of poverty and environmental decline and offers a sustainable way forward for people across the Sahel.
