Plant Trees

We’re planting predominantly in Kenya, as the tropical conditions near the equator make them grow incredibly fast. We’re planting trees in various locations in the UK too.

Community Screenings

Our documentary #TreesAreTheKey narrated by Kate Winslet, is a blueprint for global change. Fundraising community screenings are taking place all over the world.

Build Classrooms

By constructing cool, solid stone classrooms, we’re creating multi-purpose community spaces for young students & adult learners, alike.

Facilitate Education

We apply an holistic approach to learning by working with indigenous teachers who know the best way to deal with the common issues they face.

Empower Women

Our women’s empowerment group are inspirational trailblazers. They’ve planted thousands of trees & built a network of strength & support.
