This project’s goal is to enable 8000 children from rural and urban areas to participate in this project and plant over 40,000 seeds. Children who will be participating in this project will write short papers on the experiences of how to germinate and plant trees.  The project office will provide a report to I.F Foundation after the project is finished.

Trees help lift people out of extreme poverty and hunger

Trees provide produce like fruits, nuts, and honey, shea butter and mangoes which villagers grow to eat and to sell, paying for their children’s healthcare and education. Trees can survive drought even when other crops fail.

Trees protect the environment

Trees make the land more fertile by keeping the topsoil in place and putting important nutrients back into the ground. Their roots stabilize the ground preventing it from being washed away during the annual rains. Trees mean:

      • food, vitamins and nutrients all year round, even when other crops fail
      • money from selling tree products to buy food, education, and health
      • health as some trees can be used in natural medicines
      • enriched soil, making the land more fertile for crops to grow
      • shade from the scorching heat for people, wildlife and for the crops
      • tools and shelter made from bark and fallen wood
