We believe in the power of trees to change lives.
Plant Trees. Feed Families. Change Lives.
The Forest Garden Program is a simple, replicable and scalable approach with proven success. By planting specific types of trees and crops in a systematic manner over a four year period, families can change their lives forever. Forest Gardens provide families with sustainable food sources, livestock feed, products to sell, fuel wood and up to a 400% increase in their annual income.
Trees for the Future is dedicated to ending extreme hunger and poverty across Sub-Saharan Africa by revitalizing degraded lands.
Where We’re Working
We currently have 14 projects underway in five countries in Sub Saharan Africa. Our focus is on the implementation of Forest Garden Programs in Cameroon, Kenya, Senegal, Uganda and Tanzania, as these are areas where we are having the biggest impact and seeing amazing results.
Who We Have Helped
"I get more from my two acre Forest Garden than I could get from six acres of peanut crop. My sons have a future now, and as I age, trees will continue to feed my family."
Ousmane Willane and his family "Before planting trees, I had no money and I had no purpose.”
