Welcome to Mbale Trees.

This project aims to plant 10 million trees in the highly deforested area of Mbale in East Uganda.

 

Supported by Size of Wales and Welsh Government, this project aims to increase climate resilience amongst the local community whilst putting an end to the lethal landslides that have blighted the region. By establishing tree nurseries run by local people we are ensuring that reforestation is affordable, achievable, sustainable and provides a reliable source of income for all members of the community. This ultimately reduces poverty, whilst promoting literacy, numeracy and empowers individuals within in these communities.  The Project is supporting well over 60 villages to establish tree nurseries and working with over 3500 families and their communities.

This ultimately reduces poverty, whilst promoting literacy and numeracy skills and therefore empowering individuals within in these communities to own their own businesses and provide for their families.  The Project is supporting well over 60 villages to establish tree nurseries and working with over 3500 families and their communities.

The project also plants a tree for every child born or adopted in Wales through the Welsh Government’s Plant! scheme.
