Climate changes in Uganda, and all of Africa, have greatly affected agricultural yields and are causing farms to produce less. This puts food security at greater risk. According to the National Forest Authority, Uganda has lost 63% of its forest coverage in the past 25 years due to tree-cutting for firewood, timber, and charcoal, as well as for the growth of agriculture and towns.
We are partnering with local farmers in Uganda to plant trees on their land. This will help increase food production, preserve the local and global environment, and produce income to farming families. A single tree seedling costs only $2 USD. We need your help to repair our land. Join us in these reforestation efforts by sharing what you can through our website (here) and Facebook Fundraiser (here). Thank you for standing up to plant trees SO THEY CAN THRIVE with us!
