Forest conservation and reforestation are critical to a sustainable world. Deforestation is contributing to climate change, poverty and the loss of endangered species. Our goal is to help combat climate change, make communities more sustainable and resilient, protect wildlife habitat, protect wildlife–especially endangered species–and generate clean and green jobs.
Sacred Seedlings is a global coalition to support forest conservation, reforestation, urban forestry, sustainable agriculture, carbon capture, and wildlife conservation. Sustainable land management and land use are critical to the survival of entire ecosystems. Sacred Seedlings is a U.S.-based program that supports the vision of local stakeholders. We have projects ready across Africa. We seek additional projects elsewhere around the world. We also seek volunteers, sponsors and donors of cash and in-kind support.
We are developing our first projects in Tanzania and Kenya now. We are working in collaboration with several local NGOs, including Mellowswan Foundation Africa-Tanzania, EnviCulture, Earth Keepers Centre, Youth Link, Megabridge Foundation and others. The scope of projects now includes most of East Africa, including Burundi, Rwanda and Uganda.
