Spanning from Senegal to Tanzania, TREES has partnered with hundreds of thousands of smallholder farmers, guiding them in the adoption of regenerative agroforestry practices. By embracing the Forest Garden Approach, these farmers have not only revitalized degraded lands but also cultivated sustainable livelihoods. The impact is palpable, with success stories echoing from Kenya to Mali.
Paul Magna, a beneficiary of TREES in Kenya, shares his newfound joy: "My life has changed. Birds are chirping, my children are laughing, life is everywhere." Through the initiative's efforts, over 41,000 hectares of land have been restored since 2014, equivalent to the size of Dodoma, Tanzania's capital.
With support from the UN Environment Programme and the Food and Agriculture Organization, TREES aims to expand its impact, restoring hundreds of thousands of hectares of drylands by 2030 and creating 230,000 jobs across five African countries. This recognition by the UN shows the vital role of grassroots initiatives in achieving global restoration goals.

              Their work is very commendable! We Don't Have Time- Kenya has visited their projects in Western Kenya (Homabay) and Central Kenya (Kiambu) and we learnt a lot. They really deserved this-:) Congrats.
