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.

Gift Aid Makes a Huge Difference

 If you’re a UK taxpayer, please complete the Gift Aid form and the government will add 25p to every £1 you donate.
We’re incredibly mindful of keeping our running costs low but ethical. Any Gift Aid we’re able to claim, really helps to minimise the impact of running the charity, on the donations you give us to plant trees.
