TREE AID’s mission is to enable people living in the drylands of Africa to unlock the potential of trees to reduce poverty and protect the environment. Taking an integrated approach to developing businesses from non-timber forest products, better management of the environment, food security, nutrition and land rights, we help to create self-reliant communities, building not only their chances of survival but also their dignity and self-respect.

TREE AID continues to grow and expand its work across West and East Africa. We are looking for three new trustees to bring expertise in at least one the following areas:

  • International Development, forestry and agroforestry.
