At Trees for the Future, we know that we cannot achieve our goals alone. Collaboration is a key component of our Strategic Growth Plan and it’s through our collaborative partnerships that we are able to reach more people and have a greater impact on both people and our environment. We have offices in Kenya, Senegal, Tanzania, and Uganda, but you’ll see that our Collaborative Partnerships allow us to share our approach and expertise in other countries as well.
