The Green Shelter For Future Generations is one such solution.

This campaign is ready to reforest the Wadi Al Quff Reserve, with an initial planting of 22,500 trees.

By sponsoring the planting of a tree you  are investing in the rehabilitation and improvement of the local nursery, the creation of both education and skilled work opportunities in the community and the establishment of the Youth Environmental Network Initiative a collective and active knowledge base to foster trees and the reserve from future degradation.

Why Here?

The Wadi Al Quff Reserve is located in Hebron Governorate, Palestine and spans 1200 hectares. It is home to rare and vital biodiversity. And is used by both local universities for research and citizens as a natural refuge. The reserve also provides the region with a cool shelter during the increasingly hot summer months.
