Self Help Africa is planting Memorial Trees in Africa as a way for our friends and supporters to honour their deceased friends and relatives which will also leave a lasting legacy in their memory. Trees not only provide food, shade and shelter in rural poor communities, but also help to rehabilitate and regenerate degraded landscapes for generations to come.
The initiative is part of our annual ‘One Million Trees’ Campaign. For every 10 trees that we plant in Africa we will also arrange through our local partners to plant one new native tree here at home in the UK.
Memorial Tree gifts in honour of your loved ones start from £50, for which 50 tree seedlings will be planted in our programmes in sub-Saharan Africa, and a further 5 native trees will be planted here in the UK and Ireland by our local partners.
