2020 was the year the world stopped.
We watched fires rage in Australia, the Amazon and the USA, we felt the devastation of rising flood water across the UK, we witnessed our seasons changing too quickly and the health of the planet declining alongside our own.
Humanity is finally waking up to the reality that the health of the natural world has a direct impact on our own health. Your decisions and actions affect what comes next. The future of our planet is in your hands.
Our forests are vital for our survival. Trees sequester carbon from the atmosphere, cool our planet, support our water cycles, restore landscapes and provide food, shelter and livelihoods for millions of people around the world. Deforestation has been directly linked to the rise in zoonotic diseases. With decreasing habitats and wilderness, animals and humans are forced to live closer together. This increase in contact has seen viruses jump from species to species… Without healthy forests, our health is vulnerable.
Forests are our future. Healthy trees equal healthy me!
There’s a lot of information in the world right now about various solutions to our “big problems.” We understand that making a donation to a charity is an investment and that we need to be completely transparent about how your donation contributes to a healthy future.
At TreeSisters 80% of your donation goes directly into funding tropical reforestation. We currently fund 10 ethical, community focused planting projects in Brazil (Atlantic rainforest and the Amazon), Cameroon, Nepal, India, Kenya, Mozambique, West Papua and Madagascar. We have plans to expand our reforestation portfolio to a project in Borneo this year.
We fund reforestation through carefully vetted projects that expand natural forest cover and aim to avoid further deforestation. We also ensure that, through reforestation, we improve local community livelihoods and focus on participation from local women with a view to increasing gender parity.
15% of your donation funds the creation of courses, resources and community. TreeSisters has a unique approach; we focus on creating resources, experiences and communities that empower women to step into their feminine Nature-based leadership. This supports humanity's shift from a consumer species to a restorer species. Our approach is the balance of inner and outer, spiritual and practical, behavioural and ecological pathways towards that shift.
The remaining 5% of your donation goes towards the admin and fundraising that allows our team to continue doing this vital work.

Meet the Host
Clare Dubois is the Founder of TreeSisters, a global women's movement that has collectively funded the planting of over 16 million trees. TreeSisters is a social change movement and a tropical reforestation organisation working towards normalising cultural reciprocity with Nature. The aim of both Clare and The TreeSisters Team is to make it as normal to give back to Nature as it currently is to take Nature for granted, while supporting humanity in its transition from a consumer species to a restorer species.

With the rise in zoonotic diseases, planetary health and human health have been examined, discussed and debated in detail. The TreeSisters team has collated a collection of resources to enable you to find out more and conduct your own research. You can view our resources list here.
