Case Study: Food & Trees for Africa
Transforming South Africa into a green and food secure country
Food and Trees for Africa (FTFA) aims to build healthy and sustainable lives to uplift poor communities out of poverty while addressing environmental degradation and climate change. They do that through multiple programmes centred around sustainable agriculture and food production, tree planting and awareness raising. FTFA has gathered a large database of schools, communities and emerging farmers living in unhealthy, denuded and degraded landscapes that are in need of socio-economic development. At the same time, they work with hundreds of sponsors that aim to alleviate South Africa’s poverty and environmental degradation. FTFA matches the sponsors’ objectives with FTFA’s most suitable projects and with the schools, farmers, or communities’ needs. As a result, FTFA has touched the lives of hundreds of thousands of people.
