Trees for the Future

Planting Trees, Saving Lives.

Help Us Plant Trees

One tree is planted for each pair sold on through Trees for the Future.

Staheekum supports Trees for the Future in its ambition to help communities decrease poverty, motivate positive social change, and improve both local and global environments. By purchasing one pair of Staheekum shoes on our website, you plant 1 tree. Planting trees affects not only our environment, it also has a positive impact on local communities. Every tree planted offers communities in the developing world an opportunity to strengthen their environment and build a sustainable future.

About Trees For The Future

We train farmers in agroforestry and sustainable land use - so that they can grow vibrant regional economies, thriving food systems, and a healthier planet.

Trees for the Future (TREES) is currently working with thousands of farming families across nine countries in sub-Saharan Africa. Over our 30+ year history, we’ve worked around the globe. In 2014, we focused our work in select African countries, where the climatic and economic challenges were most pressing and we could make the greatest impact.

Decades of unsustainable agriculture practices have resulted in degraded and unproductive land; nutrient-scarce food systems; and farming families who are unable to grow and sell enough to meet their most basic needs. Using the Forest Garden Approach in semi-arid countries like Senegal, we’ve proven that agroforestry is a solution to each of these challenges, effectively ending hunger and poverty while restoring the land and environment.
