Greening Darfur: transform lives and landscapes



Enable 70,000 women, children and men to feed themselves year-round. By regenerating and farming thousands of hectares of barren land, you can help to promote development not dependency.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Since 2000, North Darfur has experienced five consecutive years of drought, which has been exacerbated by climate change. No water equates to no chance. Animals die, crops fail and families are forced to move in search of water. Low rainfall means low crop yields: whole generations are now dependent on food aid. This project will provide 70,000 Darfuri people with the skills, opportunities and technologies to grow their own food and reclaim their dignity.

How will this project solve this problem?

This project supplies the water, fertile land, seeds and saplings to green Darfur. By rehabilitating wells, providing 5,000 families with seeds and planting 5,000,000 trees, communities can look forward to a self-reliant future.

Potential Long Term Impact

Families will no longer sacrifice long-term prospects for short-term survival. By tree planting instead of tree cutting, communities can be productive and protect their lands. Crucially, families will be able to fully meet their food needs.
