Launched in February 2020, One Million Trees set out to plant a million trees in Africa, as well as 100,000 native trees in Ireland and the UK. Sponsored by Ireland’s premium yogurt producers, Glenisk, and featured on millions of pots of organic bio pot yogurt, the campaign captured the public imagination.
Our Mission is to alleviate hunger, poverty, social inequality and the impact of climate change through community-led, market-based and enterprise-focused approaches, so that people have access to nutritious food, clean water, decent employment and incomes, while sustaining natural resources.
What We Do
Agriculture & Nutrition
Over 70% of Africa’s poorest people live on small farms. We help these farming families achieve their potential to grow much more and earn more from their land.
We bring communities together - working as a cooperative means farmers can access new markets and earn a better income from their produce.
We’re working to level the gender field in sub-Saharan Africa. When women receive the same support as men, yields increase 20–30%.
We invest in people – providing access to small loans through microfinance gives impoverished rural families the means to improve their farms, so they can grow, eat and sell more.
Those least responsible for climate change are the most affected by global warming. We support vulnerable communities to adapt to changing climate, through climate smart agricultural techniques.
We nurture small businesses and encourage enterprise, enabling households to earn a vital alternative source of income.
