It is one of, if not the largest threat to our earth today and Africa is one of the most vulnerable continents to climate change.
This situation is further worsened by its poor state of economic development and low adaptive capacity. Alongside extreme poverty it faces frequent natural disasters such as droughts and floods. The people of Africa heavily depend on agriculture, rainfall and the help of people like you.
The scope of relief aid work at IHelp Global is not just limited to providing aid and food packets to different regions of the world. A key part of our strategy is to promote socio-economic development and environmental conservation, both of which are vital for the development of a community or region. This is why IHelp Global promotes different types of programmes that create jobs, improve the local economy and uplift a community or village to stand up on their feet. The Bee Keeping programme is one example, where women are learning the tools of the trade to become self-sufficient in order to provide for their families
There is huge emphasis in today’s world regarding clean energy and being environmentally conscious. We are taught not to waste or plunder and rather care, conserve and enrich the planet. These teachings were a key reason behind the IHelp Global drive to improve the lives of people living in remote and desolate regions of the world.
Providing relief aid to the remote communities is undoubtedly very helpful but, teaching them how to utilise their surrounding environment and natural resources to provide for themselves goes further than any aid or relief.
The Trees for Change campaign was designed specifically to achieve these goals in order to make day-to-day life easier, less stressful and more productive.
Trees absorb carbon dioxide and produce oxygen. In that sense, they serve as a way of sustaining life. The presence of trees positively impacts the process of transpiration, thus resulting in much needed rain in the region for drinking and harvesting purposes. They can help prevent flooding and curb soil erosion. Most importantly, trees provide an ecosystem in which wildlife can survive and prosper naturally.
With that in mind, IHelp Global started planting trees in and around Africa in order to provide the locals with an independent tree nursery, and to teach them how to conserve the environment to their advantage.
