Pauline, the Director of Trees for Global Benefits was visiting at Grow this last week. This program sells carbon offsets to provide funds supports farmers in Uganda, providing funds to help them plant trees and manage their land. Carbon offsets are sold to help fund the program which creates sustainable livelihoods for families in Uganda. The revenue from the carbon offsets and from well-managed agricultural land helps them to get loans, to pay for school fees, to buy food for their children. Grow supports Trees for Global Benefits on an ongoing basis.
