Run 4 TREEZ:

Malawi, a very little known country in South East Africa, suffers from one of the highest rates of deforestation in the world as 90% of the population rely on firewood and charcoal for cooking and heating. TREEZ (www.zombatreez.com) aims to help combat these detrimental effects through replanting trees, protecting areas so as to allow natural regeneration and education in order to encourage sustainabilty and build resilience.

The Run4Reforestation, now in its third year, aims to raise money to help TREEZ replant and protect the Plateau and to raise awareness about the problems of deforestation and environmental degradation.

This year, sadly, we can't have a big fundraising event but if you are interested in helping, you can chose to either donate directly or to organize your own fundraising for TREEZ by following the fundraise link.

Run 5km, 10km or 21km in between the 5th and 12th of September and help us fight the deforestation here in Malawi.

These are difficult times for all but we hope that with all your help, we can continue to help protect the vulnerable communities whose livelihoods depend on the Plateau.

Email us run4reforestation@gmail.com if you have any questions :)

About the charity

RCN 1185908
Due to the increase in population and the need for woodfuel for cooking and heating, Malawi has lost 85% of its trees in the last 20 years, and as the graph shows: at current rates of population growth and deforestation, by 2025 the country will no longer have enough biomass to sustain the population. ​ Zomba TREEZ aims to mitigate the damage caused by the loss of the biomass and help reduce the effects of climate change in the Zomba area. Through raising awareness, tree planting, promotion of natural regeneration and fire prevention we aim to increase water retention, reduce soil erosion, provide clean air and water, and protect and preserve Malawi’s biodiversity. • For the past 4 years Zomba TREEZ has sponsored 2 local football teams: The Happy Hammers and the Berries FC. For the past 2 years Zomba TREEZ is also sponsoring the Happy Hammers Queen and Berries Queens, local netball teams. • In exchange for the sponsorship, the teams help with the tree planting and maintenance of the seedlings and also help with the any firefighting if fires occur. • Involving local community groups to help with the maintenance and upkeep of the seedlings, as well as the creation of firebreaks for the seedlings’ protection through a “money for survival rate” payment scheme. • The water catchment conservation corridors that TREEZ has been planting have a significant representation of fruit trees, this is for the local communities to have a source of nutrition and income from the forest
