Support reforestation in Haiti and Kenya

Reforestation against climate change

Climate change has long been omnipresent and its consequences are noticeable. Extreme weather events are becoming more frequent and are having serious impacts on the environment and local people around the world. Especially in poorer countries, crop failures due to droughts, floods or forest fires can lead to catastrophic situations and massively endanger people's basic supplies.

Trees can counteract this: Healthy tree populations can mitigate the effects of disasters and improve both water quality and soil fertility. They also stabilize and protect biodiversity and provide refuge for animals and insects (Source: Eos, 2021 ).

Reforestation against climate change

Where we help

The effects of climate change often hit hardest those who have done the least to cause it. It is important to do something about it now. That is precisely why we support projects like this in Haiti and Kenya.

Why Haiti
Why Haiti

Islands are particularly affected by extreme weather events and climate change. In Haiti, the number of hurricanes and floods has increased significantly in recent decades. This threatens flora and fauna, damages agricultural harvests and jeopardizes food security. Forests, which otherwise slow down soil and water, have been cleared in recent years, which exacerbates the problem.

Why Kenya
Why Kenya

The mangrove ecosystems along the Kenyan coast are home to a diverse range of bird and marine fauna. Their extensive roots retain sediment, dampen storm surges and waves, and protect against flooding and erosion. Many mangrove forests have been severely damaged by human activities and environmental impacts, threatening wildlife and the livelihoods of local people.

What we want to achieve

Together with our cooperation partners, we set clear and ambitious goals for each project right from the start. In this way, we want to ensure that as many people as possible are helped effectively and sustainably. This also applies to the projects in Haiti and Kenya.

How we work

In this project, with which we are pursuing not only a social goal but also an ecological one, we have teamed up with experts: certified national and international aid organizations with expertise in the field of climate protection. We trust them because we can understand exactly how they use the money. This way we can be sure that our help is reaching the right people.

Our selected partners in the fight for climate protection are Eden Reforestation Projects and Welthungerhilfe .

about the project

Agricultural cultivation, livestock farming and charcoal production are causing Haiti's forests to continue to dwindle.

Welthungerhilfe is on site and is working with the local population to support long-term reforestation.

Reforestation as a basis for sustainable agriculture

In Haiti, we are working together with Welthungerhilfe and the local population to expand the tree population. Welthungerhilfe is also promoting the transfer of knowledge about sustainable agriculture. This helps to improve agricultural production and food security in the region.

Looking to the future

With your support, we can work with Welthungerhilfe to expand tree populations, improve soil and impart the knowledge needed to secure agricultural production and prevent forest loss.

about the project

The Milihoi / Kichwa Cha Nyoka reforestation area is located on the coast of Kenya. The aim of the project is to restore more than 2,000 hectares of partially degraded mangrove forests while protecting healthy mangroves.
