Plant With Purpose
Plant With Purpose, a Christian nonprofit organization, reverses deforestation and poverty around the world by transforming the lives of the rural poor. Plant With Purpose equips families to change their circumstances, provide for their children, and live with hope and dignity. Rather than focusing on one problem or solution to poverty, we use an integrated three-part approach:
Environmental Restoration: Through training in sustainable agriculture and land restoration techniques, including reforestation, farmers are equipped to increase their productivity.
Economic Empowerment: Through Village Savings and Loan Associations (VSLAs), groups work together to save their own money and then make loans to group members to develop small businesses, invest in their farms, send their children to school, and more.
Spiritual Renewal: We equip churches in their efforts to help people experience God’s love, and we mobilize churches to meet needs using local resources.
