THE STORY:

Plant With Purpose is a faith-based, international development organization that transforms lives in rural areas where poverty is caused by deforestation. Our three-part environmental, economic, and spiritual approach to sustainable development transforms the communities and people we work with in the following ways.

Three Part Approach:
Environmental Restoration
For families in rural communities, their livelihood is based off of what the land produces. Through reforestation efforts and sustainable farming techniques, Plant With Purpose farmers are literally getting to the root of poverty. These efforts restore the land so that farmers can produce more food to put on the table and more income to provide for family needs. Not only does family nutrition increase, but the additional income means parents can send their children to school, provide for health care, and meet other needs—all while restoring the environment and creating hope for the future.

Economic Empowerment
Village Savings and Loan Associations provide a sustainable form of microfinance. This savings-led approach brings groups together to create a financial safety net by saving their own money and then making loans to individuals within the group to develop small businesses, invest in their farms, and make household improvements.

Spiritual Renewal
Plant With Purpose invests in the whole person through partnerships with local churches. Church mobilization is equipping leaders to guide congregations and community members to evaluate practical needs in their communities and create solutions using resources that are on hand.
