OUR MISSION

The Benefits of Canopy Restoration

Restoring the canopy in Ethiopia will remove millions of tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, reduce erosion, stop flooding, bring plant and animal life into balance and renew livelihoods. Most of the wood that is cut in Ethiopia is used for cooking, heating and for dwellings. Burning wood for cooking is unhealthy to mothers and their young children who inhale the smoke.  Educating citizens on sustainability, particularly those who have relied on wood products for their daily needs, is a key element to protecting young trees that have been planted.
