We design cooperative, gender-equitable agroforestry programmes aimed at integrating climate change mitigation, poverty alleviation and biodiversity enhancement
Our commitment to achieving equality of opportunity starts with recognising the important contributions women as decision-makers, educators and stakeholders make towards successful long-term community development. For our activities to be successful, we sensitise genders working together by encouraging the distribution and sharing of economic resources and responsibilities.
Climate change has been identified as the defining human development issue of our time. While often viewed as a purely scientific and technical phenomenon, we see climate change as a social, economic and political phenomenon with profound implications for social justice and gender equality
We stick to our roots, so only plant indigenous and naturalised trees, which turn degraded land into productive, income generating, biodiversity-rich food, medicinal & nutritional forests
The rights of our farmers and schools go beyond the ownership of trees planted and harvested. We ensure that 60% of carbon payments and ecosystem benefits are directed into the local community
We follow the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) framework, particularly SDG 15 Life on Land, SDG 13 Climate Action, SDG 11 Sustainable Cities & Communities and SDG 5 Gender Equity
