Darfur is at the forefront of global warming. The desert is creeping south at a rate of three miles a year. Kids for Kids plants over 14 different varieties of trees in Darfur: Neem, Moringa, Baobab, Nabuk and Citrus Fruit Trees, Acacia Senegal and more. They provide important byproducts that we teach people to use, help to reforest the desert, give fruit to hungry children and provide shade from the hot desert sun. Most important of all, they stabilise the desert and create a mini climate.
Kids for Kids also builds clean water handpumps close to the villages that we adopt, which means people can water the trees and keep them alive, benefitting the community and the environment. Learn about our water projects here.
