Welcome to Tree Shepherd!


We work with the natural entrepreneurial skills of local people and support them to transform where they live from places of neglect to places of opportunity. We help enterprises to start, develop and grow and help create the conditions where new jobs can be created.

one-20x20 Sowing ambition

two-20x20Nurturing enterprise

three-20x20Improving conditions

four-20x20Enterprise ecosystem
