🌳 To many rural communities, trees are wealth 🌳 ⠀
In Ghana we met a women’s collective who harvest, process and sell the fruits of the baobab tree. This income helps them pay for their children’s school fees and for medical bills.
They also have lots of fun together 😝💃🏾 #matriachy#girlpower#switchtoecosia

Reason #8737 why trees are the best: they grow superfoods like the baobab fruit, which rural communities can sell in order to pay for school fees and medical bills. 📸 from our visit to our reforestation project in Ghana 🍊 🌰 🌿👌🏾 #ecosia#ghana#superfood
The forest will grow as she does. 📸 from our trip to Burkina Faso. These two generations are preparing seed beds together, just in time for the rainy season. #treeplanting#desert#africa
Nothing grew in the Sahel for generations, and many villagers lost hope in their soil. The earth beneath their feet became hard and sterile. Some moved to the city, leaving their family behind.
But how things change. This year, many villagers came together to help us dig seedbeds to plant trees. Thank you for helping us to re-green the desert with your searches 🌱 🏜️ #ecosia#burkinafaso#africa#trees
This sapling is one of three million we’ve just finished planting in the Western Usambara mountains!
The forest will prevent erosion and restore natural water systems, benefiting the local communities who made this project happen 🌱💧😍 #makeitrain#reforestation#tanzania

Your searches have led to millions of trees being planted in the Usambara mountains as part of a full restoration program. 🌳 ⛰️ Next, we'll support local farmers by setting up agroforestry systems on the slopes, where they can grow crops as well as trees. #switchtoecosia#tanzania#africa#trees#nature
What do our planting projects sound like? How many tree updates can our tree-planting officer Pieter squeeze into one phone call? And what are the strangest ‘Climate change is a hoax’ theories on the internet?
