Tree Aid helps villagers in arid areas of Africa unlock the potential of trees to combat poverty and protect nature. The Turing Foundation supported one of their regreening projects in Mali in the period 2016-2018, with good results. With its local partner Association for the Development and Promotion and Training Activities (ADAF/Gallé), Tree Aid is restoring 2,000 ha of degraded land by planting trees and promoting natural regeneration. In close collaboration with the community, they are setting up two nurseries and will eventually plant 14,000 saplings. Farmers are being trained in better land management techniques, such as protecting shoots, better pruning techniques, erosion resistant stone walls and water management. Wood-saving ovens and vegetable gardens are expected to reduce pressure on the ecosystem.

Financement : The Turing Foundation is contributing € 105,000 towards this project (of which € 45,000 in 2019
