Transforming Lives with Africa’s Great Green Wall: A Photo Series


The Great Green Wall is a long-held African dream, currently taking root on the edge of the world’s largest hot desert: the Sahara. Dubbed the "next wonder of the world", the ongoing project will eventually see the growth of an 8,000km ‘green wall’ made from trees and plants across the entire African continent, from Senegal in the West to Djibouti in the East. The aim? To transform the lives of some of the planet’s poorest people.

Refinery29 - the youth-oriented lifestyle website -  has created a powerful photo series, which shows how this modern wonder of the world is taking shape across the African Continent.
