Zessoo has partnered with Eden Reforestation Projects
to help make this dream possible.

Madagascar is more than just an island from an animated movie. It’s a nation with over 200,000 species of plants and animals that don’t exist anywhere else in the world. But more than 90% of Madagascar’s original forests have been destroyed, displacing entire animal species and taking away the Malagasy’s ability to farm and live on the land. Entire mangrove estuaries are gone, leaving the bare earth to wash away into the sea.

Eden Reforestation Projects launched its Madagascar project sites in 2007 by restoring ecologically devastated mangrove estuaries in the northwest of the country. Mangrove forests are essential ecosystems whose dense roots serve as an anchor for the soil and coastline preventing erosion and creating a barrier between harsh ocean systems and land. What began as primarily mangrove restoration and reforestation in 2007 grew to include a variety of native dry deciduous species in 2012.

Eden Projects partners include two National Park systems, which aim to reforest and revive natural habitat for endangered and endemic animal species.

Eden Reforestation Projects is a 501c3 non-profit whose mission is to provide fair wage employment to impoverished villagers as agents of global forest restoration. We hire the poorest of the poor to grow, plant, and guard to maturity native species forest on a massive scale. Our “employ to plant methodology” results in a multiplication of positive socio-economic and environment measures.


By the year 2020 our objective is to plant a minimum of 100 million trees each year and to offer hope through the employment of tens of thousands of people in countries where extreme poverty is rampant.

By keeping our overhead costs low, we are now recognized as one of the most cost-effective reforestation projects on the planet.  While our primary goal is to lift people out of extreme poverty, we have also become a model for environmental restoration and land management.
