Ghana was once famous for its vast forests, its many animal species, and its beautiful white sand beaches.
Unfortunately, since the 1990s, Ghana has lost more than 30% of its forests, about 2.5 million hectares, an ecological disaster of incalculable proportions.
The project aims to plant trees again, to help the rebirth of land devastated by wild agriculture, pollution, and mining. Creating new forests will make those who survive stronger and will promote an ecological culture and sustainable practices in the local community. Our partners and we have a great goal: to plant 50,000 trees in Ghana! The project will be concentrated in the northern regions of the Savannah, where desertification is progressing a lot. Intervening in this region is very important for stabilizing the climate and making the soil fertile again, as well as creating a positive social impact. Through the involvement and active participation of the community, the project aims to educate local farmers about the importance of forest conservation and to reduce illegal crops.
To get the most from the project, our partner will determine the best plant species to plant in the region, trees such as Acacia, Teak, and Mahogany. The operation will be carried out in the rainy season, between May and September.
Supporting the project, each supporter will have a certificate of thanks and updates to life on the project through email. Planting trees is an investment in the future of the planet and for a better life for our children.
