Simply put, we restore forest landscapes by protecting forests and growing trees.
WeForest vzw (non-profit association) was established in 2009 and now has 4 legal entities: Belgium, France, Ethiopia and Zambia. Our staff is currently made of 40 professionals, of which 70% are based in the largest projects where we operate.
We have developed our own large-scale projects in Zambia and Ethiopia and co-developed other projects in India, Brazil, Tanzania and Malawi. Ten projects are active in six countries across three continents where we cooperate with a variety of business partners, NGO’s, research institutes, international funding agencies, government and public partners across the world.
