WeForest is an international non-profit that develops high quality forest restoration and conservation projects for companies committed to stopping global warming. In addition to drawing CO2 out of the atmosphere, trees balance the Earth’s water cycle which is essential for cooling our climate. Moreover, growing trees through WeForest helps provide income to local people, improves the health of the soil and benefits biodiversity.
Their vision is a world where communities and nations sustainably manage their forests and natural resources for the benefit of our climate, our environment and humanity. While their mission is to build upon corporate and scientific partnerships, WeForest empowers communities to sustainably advance and implement innovative, high standard, scalable and lasting solutions to restore forest landscapes. WeForest has the goal to successfully transform 250,000 ha of existing forest landscape by 2021, as well as restoring 25,000 ha of former forest land including the plantation of 25 million trees, while demonstrating Forest and Landscape Restoration best practices in different ecosystems. WeForest is committed to developing applied research projects that will help understand and improve practices. Currently, the organization is active in Tanzania, Ethiopia, Brazil, Malawi, Zambia, and India. Active Giving specifically supports the Brazil forest project.
