November 8 to 10, 2021 Trailer: here Twitter: @restoreforward | Instagram: @restore_forward The Grand African Green Up tells the story of people across Africa who are restoring their landscapes, from the dry forests of Senegal to the green hills of Kenya, as part of Africa’s most ambitious environmental initiative: the African Forest Landscape Restoration Initiative (AFR100). Together, local communities, governments, and private investors are uniting to restore 100 million hectares of land, an area of land nearly the size of Ethiopia, by 2030. Why are they investing their time – and hope? They know that to grow more food, fight climate change, combat rural poverty, and empower youth leaders, they need to build an African-led movement to revitalize land and rural economies. AFR100 Presents: The Grand African Green Up matches inspiring images from Africa's most beautiful landscapes with the perspectives and wisdom of people working every day in the communities that they call home. Take action with The Grand African Green Up: Hundreds of organizations are working to restore land throughout Africa, but they need funding to ramp up their efforts. It’s a sound investment: every $1 invested in restoring land can create up to $30 in economic benefits for local communities. By donating to this fund, you can help provide local grassroots organizations with the resources they need to help communities and the environment thrive. All of the funds that you donate go directly to AFR100 projects: I Want To Help Farmers Plant Trees | I Want To Help Farmers Regreen Their Land
