Mount Kilimanjaro is one of the highest mountains in the world, with forests that are essential for the supply of water in the nearby regions, which take water from the main river of Tanzania, the Pangani. Unfortunately, forests are rapidly disappearing, as extensive logging is underway to sell firewood and to obtain new land for industrial crops. Wild deforestation has also damaged the ecosystem of the Kilimanjaro glaciers, with disastrous consequences for the region’s climate.
Now more than ever it is necessary to plant new trees in the area, to combat climate change and give new opportunities for work to the local population.
Our partners have chosen to run the project with maximum transparency, integrating an app called TreeTracker, which allows collaborating with the farmers and the local population to monitor in real time the development of the project and the health status of all trees, geolocating them and obtaining photographs at any time. The local population is encouraged to contribute to the project, as it is paid both for planting trees and for maintenance through the App. The health of the trees, therefore, translates into an income, in the long run, encouraging environmental care.
Supporting the project, you will receive a certificate and updates on the project via email.
Even a single tree planted is able to make the difference between a polluted world and an ecological world, your help can make the difference.
