Impact areas:

By reversing desertification, helping water filtration and improving soil, forests supply clean water and air, as well as providing livelihoods to surrounding communities.

Our projects provide livelihoods and products

Healthy forests can produce useful resources such as food, medicines and timber. Around 1.3 billion people globally are directly dependent on forests.

Our projects regulate the climate

Forest ecosystems help to maintain the quality of air and soil, water supply and regulation, controlling flooding and erosion, cloud formation and carbon sequestration.

Our projects support communities

Jobs are created in community-run nurseries or at planting time. Farmers are supported in transitioning to sustainable agriculture practices such as agroforestry. Across all WeForest projects, women are empowered through income generation and entrepreneurship.

Our projects support women

Women are still responsible for household work in many countries, meaning that they are the ones providing their family members with food. In a subsistence economy, this means that they are typically the ones collecting water and gathering firewood. They play a key role in our projects, which provides them with some financial independence.
