Tentipi supports tree-planting organisation Vi Agroforestry

Vi Agroforestry is an aid organisation that plants trees in Africa. By supporting Vi Agroforestry, Tentipi is contributing to the important work of combating poverty and improving environment and climate management in eastern Africa.

Vi Agroforestry plants trees which thereby helps to lift people out of poverty

Planting trees is a fantastic way of both combating poverty and dealing with the effects of global climate change.

  • Trees enable barren fields to regain their natural fertility.
  • Trees protect against erosion and the burning sun.
  • Trees provide fruit and nutrients and put food on tables.
  • Wood can be used as a building material and creates new ways of making a living.
  • Trees store carbon dioxide.

Vi Agroforestry’s long-term approach to planting trees and educating people in agroforestry (the co-cultivation of food crops and trees) is also bringing about changes in deeply rooted social structures and helping to make society more equal.

Vi Agroforestry is a Swedish aid organisation that plants trees in Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda and Tanzania. These four countries have been severely affected by deforestation and its catastrophic effects on both humans and nature for many years.

Since 1983, Vi Agroforestry has planted more than 123 million trees which have improved the lives of 2.5 million people.
