Our kilometres are making a difference in Zambia

WeForest

We’re supporting the forests in Zambia through our Health initiative with our partner WeForest.

When you think about WeForest, you might think it’s about planting trees, but WeForest is actually much more than that.

As a team, we have supported a total of 28,190 trees today. The trees are growing in the Copperbelt Province in Zambia, but the project we’re supporting is much more than growing trees. We’re helping the local community by engaging smallholder farmers in reversing deforestation.

The forests in that region need assisted natural regeneration. The typical local miombo forest has suffered from mining and charcoal production, so WeForest trains farmers to restore their small farms so the forests and land can get healthy and grow again.

One way to promote the local livelihood development is through beehives; healthy trees and forests bring bees, and honey provides money to the local farmers. A local farmer named David has been a WeForest farmer since 2016, and he has five beehives on his 1.25 ha farm forest. The beehives have helped increase his yearly income with an extra 22% of his regular annual income.

WeForest has created a map where you can read short stories and see photos from the project we’re supporting. Check it out here.
