The Tree Project

Why we need your help

The Tree Project is one of Fisherman’s Rest’s community projects. Fisherman’s Rest has been working in Malawi for the past 25 years. FROM Wales (Fisherman’s Rest Outreach Malawi) is the UK Charity we fundraise through.We are focused on two area’s 20km outside Blantyre city in the south of the country. Our vision is to see the schools and communities here lifted out of poverty through increasing standards of education and developing business in the area. In everything we do, we do it with the community. Our ethos is to reach out to people and give people opportunities in life, not a hand out.

The Tree Project

The Tree Project aims to see forest back in Malawi and each family to once again own their own woodlot, farming it sustainably and leaving a legacy for generations to come. We plant between 4000 and 7000 trees annually in schools. 2019 has seen us continue to invest into communities, reforesting woodlots in partnership with local Chiefs and communities. The majority of trees are sourced from Fisherman’s Rest Nature Reserve, offering a cheap and sustainable way to spread as many trees as possible out into surrounding communities.
