When the aim of a tree planting project is to empower the community surrounding it; when it prioritises the long-term versus the short-term gains; that's when the magic happens. This is what our partners in Burkina Faso are proving:

Ecosia finances tree-planting projects in areas of the world so different from each-other as West Africa, South America and South East Asia.

And, yet, across all projects we always hear the same, inspiring message from elderly members of the local communities: Planting trees for them means leaving behind a stable, rich future for their children to flourish in life.

In rural Burkina Faso women are mostly in charge of sourcing and maintaining a village’s supplies. Deforestation means that they have to walk further distances to find all the necessary forest goods such as timber, branches or leaves.

You are helping change this. With your searches we can help empower local populations to grow forests closer to their homes and empower themselves to lead...

What do our planting sites in Madagascar, Peru and Indonesia have in common? Each is located in one of our planet's 35 biodiversity hotspots: places that are home to more than half of all plant, bird, mammal, reptile and amphibian species, despite making up less than 2% of Earth's land surface.

These hotspots are in peril. Almost all of their original vegetation has been destroyed. If we...
