Dear the Donors

We have obtained a quote for plant this pentadesma butyracea trees because these trees for reforestation and also the fruit can be beneficial for oil production.

The vegetable fat extracted from the seed is in good demand from the global food and confectionery industries, if it is produced in a sustainable manner. Pentadesma fat is extracted with simple technology, is a very good cooking fat, a vegetable fat spread can be produced and can be converted to biodiesel even on a small scale.

Prof. V.K.S. Shukla (www.ifsc.dk) and Hemal De Silva have carried out extensive research on the species

Our team in Aceh has provided 250 acres of land for planting this tree. but the obstacles we face is the cost to cultivate this land is very expensive, so expect help from the donors to realize our ideals.

On October 19, GlobalGiving.org is matching at 30% all online donations up to $1,000 per donor per project!  There is $100,000 available in matching funds on Oct 19.  Once these matching funds are used, no more matching funds will be applied.  In addition to the 30% match, GlobalGiving is offering a $1,000 bonus to the project that raises the most funds that day and a $1,000 bonus to the project that receives donations from the most individual donors!

We look forward to the donors to participate in this program so that our program can continue to maintain the balance of our natural.
