Plant With Purpose empowers 37,000 rural subsistence farmers, approximately 200,000 adults and children in eight countries, to alleviate extreme poverty using a three-part holistic approach to community development comprised of environmental restoration, economic empowerment, and spiritual renewal. More specifically, Plant With Purpose promotes community-based sustainable farming, reforestation, gender equality, savings-led micro finance, and more. Our latest three-year impact evaluation found that partnering farmers cut their poverty by nearly two-thirds!

  • "After being trained, I started using sustainable techniques and received good results in production despite my small plot of land. Before receiving training, production was low, bringing in little income, but now we are beginning to see good results. Before my children ate once a day, but now my house eats two meals a day! I have taken a loan from our savings-and-loan group and paid the school fees for my children. I am happy to have Plant With Purpose in our watershed."

  • “Some of the techniques we have learned include composting, soil conservation, grafting, and tree seedling production. I’ve used loans in the market to buy and re-sell kitchen items such as soap and utensils. I’ve used the money I make to buy food for the family, clothes for the children, and to pay for their school fees.”
