Plant 4 Pemba

Welcome to the movement.

Since 2008, hundreds of professional tree planters from across Canada and around the world have come together to plant trees and donate their earnings to support a movement for community-led resilience.

Today, Plant 4 Pemba has grown into our biggest annual fundraiser to support ecosystem restoration, agroforestry, and more across the Zanzibar islands.

What’s more, donations to Plant 4 Pemba are used to secure funding from the European Union Development Fund. This has become a critical part of how we unlock significant funds for the work in Zanzibar – and means your donation goes 10x as far!

Support the Movement

You can donate towards Plant 4 Pemba, knowing that 100% of your donation goes directly to support Zanzibar’s coastal communities build resilience, increase food security, and restore forests. This year, your donation goes 10x as far thanks to a match from the European Union.

Community-Led Solutions

Our work in Zanzibar is built on relationships of trust and respect, and the understanding that Community Forests Pemba and the community members we serve are the experts. Our role is to support and uplift this work, channelling resources to those on the ground. We prioritise a community-led approach and seek to actively listen and support community needs.
