Why Forest and Landscape Restoration?
By reversing desertification, helping water infiltrate and improving soil, forests supply clean water and air and provide livelihoods to surrounding communities.

Mobilizing communities, restoring nature: A social impact investment opportunity
Across all WeForest projects, women are empowered through income generation and entrepreneurship.
Women are still responsible for household work in many countries, meaning that they are the ones providing their husband and children – and perhaps other 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 using and managing forest resources, yet are often overlooked or even excluded.
