Tree planting in Malawi - a new video of our planting partner, RIPPLE Africa

Our friends at RIPPLE Africa are completing these days another planting season of trees in Malawi, Africa.

They have published a very powerful video last month on the deforestation problems that Malawi is facing (In Malawi an area of forest the size of a football pitch is cut down every 10 minutes!) and the work RIPPLE Africa is doing with local communities to fight it.

The goal of their reforestation efforts is to plant and grow millions of trees every year and to "
train, educate and empower the local communities to sustainably manage their environment to reduce poverty". We are proud to partner with RIPPLE Africa and support these goals and we hope you'll enjoy this video.

More details on RIPPLE Africa are available on their website - More information on our work with RIPPLE Africa can be found on our partners' page and on their annual assessments.
