Regenerating diverse landscapes
Widespread deforestation across Ethiopia has resulted in bare mountains, dry river banks and eroded soil. Ecosia is restoring natural tree cover and working with local women’s groups and landless youth to plant trees in a way that benefits rural communities. These trees restore watersheds to keep rivers flowing and regenerate soils so they can be productive again. By joining our program, farmers are helping to restore their local environment. But the benefits don't stop there: trees improve crop yields, which provides income for medicine and school fees.
