Project # 29 | Reforestation and Job Creation in Madagascar
Our partnership with Eden Reforestation Projects
Since October 2007 Eden Reforestation Projects has been busy restoring healthy forest systems along Madagascar’s West coast by hiring hundreds of full season workers along with hundreds of additional short term seasonal workers. To date over twenty-one million mangrove trees have been planted inside the massive Mahabana Estuary. Our second partnership with Eden Reforestation Projects will provide employment, many of whom are single moms, and plant 100,000 trees.
Thank you for making this possible!
Our movement is grassroots, to us that not only means the work on the ground is led by local leaders with the support of the community, but it also means that we raise the funds for our projects through everyday donors just like you. In addition to all the donors that gave $25, $100, or $250 and the campaigners that ran a race or donated their birthday to raise funds, we also want to thank our generous business, school, and faith sponsors who believed in our work and joined the movement.
If you want to support future projects like this you can make a donation to our jobs and skills fund.
