Trees of hope



Improve the nutrition and living situation of people in Ethiopia for sustainable fight of poverty through afforestation and water harvesting, in close collaboration with farmer and women associations.

 

This is the main objective of Foundation Green Ethiopia. But it is not about delivering aid, instead it is about support for self-development, starting with afforestation and ending with people being empowered to sustainably improve their living situation themselves.

 

The objective of the foundation is to fight erosion and its dramatic consequences through afforestation, and supporting the Ethiopian agriculture and forestry for re-gaining food security.

 

Focal point is the cycle:

 

Trees - Forests - Water - Nutrition - Life
