MRF launch tree planting programme to invest in the environment Deforestation in the country is estimated to be responsible for the loss of around 33,000 hectares per year. This has led to forest degradation, fragmentation of wildlife habitats and challenges for local farming communities.
Research has shown that farmers who plant trees can help to overcome many of the problems being experienced in Malawi.
Trees have the potential to provide a wide range of benefits to farmers, including better soil fertility and crop yields, more firewood, fruits that supplement nutrition and opportunities for income generation. Planting trees on farms can play an important role in poverty reduction and improving food security. This project will focus on maximizing tree species diversity, while planting fruit and medicinal trees useful for the community.
Training the local community Support us to plant half a million trees to help the environment, the farmers and the local community.
Anas bin Malik narrated: The Messenger of Allah peace and blessings be upon him said,
“There is none amongst the Muslims who plants a tree or sows seeds, and then a bird, or a person or an animal eats from it, but is regarded as a charitable gift for him.”
Sahih al-Bukhari 2320
