Eden Reforestation Projects work with local communities to restore landscapes on a massive scale, thereby creating jobs, protecting ecosystems, and helping mitigate climate change.
Deforestation is a critical issue that destroys ecosystems and spreads poverty. Eden Reforestation Projects plants trees for reforestation, agroforestry, and reducing extreme poverty through the employment of local villagers. To date, Eden has employed over 3,500 full and partial season village workers and planted over 250 million trees in Ethiopia, Madagascar, Nepal, Haiti, and Indonesia.
At the center of Eden Reforestation Projects is their relationships with local communities. They work alongside them to restore and monitor over 241,150 hectares of land, thereby creating jobs to support the communities and environment in the long-term.
