Africa Wood Grow is thé reforestation movement that is restoring degraded land in Sub-Saharan Africa. We implement agroforestry projects, which are ecosystem-based farming practices that incorporate trees into agricultural cultivation.
Africa Wood Grow consists of three entities:
- Kamiti Community Based Organisation (Farmers)
- The Africa Wood Grow Foundation (Foundation)
- Africa Wood Grow Limited (Company)
These entities all share the same vision of restoring the natural ecological balance and creating a forest-based economy.
Africa Wood Grow Limited was established in 2010 and is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the movement. The Africa Wood Grow Foundation was established in 2014 to improve participation with the local community. The Kamiti Community Based Organisation (CBO) was created shortly after to support the foundation’s work.
The work of Africa Wood Grow is having a positive impact on the local community. Soil erosion has been reduced, vegetation cover and animal diversity have increased, and soil fertility has improved. This has led to increased water and food security for the local community.
Africa Wood Grow is a sustainable way to restore degraded land and improve the lives of the local community. They are making a real difference in Sub-Saharan Africa and are helping to create a more resilient landscape.
