A final thank you for supporting reforestation activities in Amhara

Thank you for your support
Thank you for your support

In the Amhara region, like in many areas of Africa, farmers mostly see forests as a resource for timber and fuel wood, resulting in high levels of deforestation and severe soil erosion. We work together with them, to improve their livelihoods with alternatives that do not destroy the forest. They then become our best local ambassadors to protect the forest in the long term.

The project currently employs 44 permanent staff members, working as forest experts, site facilitators and nursery workers. Furthermore, 550 casual workers are in charge of the nursery support, planting and site maintenance.

Thanks to some funding, we are able to ensure the longevity of the project. Therefore, we wil emove this porject from GlobalGiving.
We however wanted to take a moment to sincerely thank you for your support!
Please be aware that your support made it possible to restore degraded lands and allowed us to imporve people's lives. Locals re-value standing forests who help put an end to global warming. 

If you would like to continue supporting WeForest's cause, please be aware that we have several other projects on GlobalGiving, including reforestation projects in Brazil, the Khasi Hills in India, Zambia and the Seret Exclosure in Ethiopia.
