TREE AID’s mission is to enable people living in the drylands of Africa to unlock the potential of trees to reduce poverty and protect the environment.

A message from Shireen Chambers,

Chair of Trustees

Thank you very much for your interest in TREE AID and I hope you will apply for the position of trustee.

TREE AID has built up a strong reputation internationally as a high performing organisation that is able to deliver on its promises. We are an innovative, knowledgeable and specialist charity focusing on the role of trees in tackling poverty and improving environmental management in dryland Africa. The demand for our work is enormous.

As Chair of TREE AID it is my great privilege to provide, with the other trustees, the leadership and guidance to support this work, focusing on its quality and long-term impact.

Given the incredible need for our work, we have set ourselves the target of delivering further expansion over the next five years. We are looking to build the influence and impact of our work by sharing our experience more widely. For this reason, we are looking for three new trustees to strengthen our Board that offer expertise in either forestry (preferably international expertise), fundraising, digital strategy or HR.

As stated in the material, John Moffett, the Chief Executive, is available for more information and if you then want to talk to me specifically about the roles and requirements, please let him know and I will be in touch.

With best wishes and thanks again for considering serving this organisation, which does such important work in improving the prospects of poor people across dryland Africa.

Shireen Chambers
