Reforestation

Most deforestation in Africa is by local people just trying to survive.

Cooking fires and charcoal are a key ingredient to hot food and clean (boiled) water. Population growth has outpaced production of hardwoods with little or no organized replanting. 3rd World Tech provides, fast growing Acacia trees, and Moringa Oleifera. Moringas are also used in our malnutrition and water purification projects.

We partner with Woodlands 2000 Trust. Each tree is provided along with vegetables. Our village partners participating in gardening and irrigation programs care for trees almost as a natural consequence of growing vegetables and corn though terraced irrigation. 

RIPPLE Africa’s Tree Planting Project

RIPPLE Africa’s tree planting project has been running since 2006, and has helped over 175 community groups to plant over 3 million trees in the Nkhata Bay District of Malawi, Africa. RIPPLE Africa’s tree planting project is the largest tree planting project in our district, and provides a long-term solution to fighting deforestation in Africa.

Reforestation Project - West Africa


Amidst the many responses to the Global Climate challenge, Reforestation Projects remain the most cost-effective approach to large-scale carbon sequestration and helps secure long-term social, economic and environmental stability. While much of the world is witnessing the emergence of renewable energy technologies that can decrease carbon emissions, advances in natural plant genetics have produced remarkable new species of fast-growing trees that can capture carbon dioxide at unprecedented rates.
