About the project in Tanzania
The project is located in north-east Tanzania, in the region of Tanga. It covers 230,700 hectares of land and 15 different operational areas. Travel & Tree has an on-site cooperation project with a local tree nursery, which takes care of the entire implementation process.
The local population greatly welcomes the project, as it not only creates valuable jobs, but also an awareness of the importance of sustainability. The tree project in Tanzania simultaneously combats the poverty and hunger of the people there, as the stable income enables the employees to feed their families.
Native plants as well as crops are planted at the site. The local farmers are given these plants and trees as a gift and allowed to harvest and sell the fruit from the trees in return for growing them.
