Hello Friends of FTPF,

We just returned from a weeklong planting trip to El Salvador. This year was amazing, full of both new and returning volunteers and community members, thousands of thriving fruit trees, and lots of laughs, knowledge, and great food shared along the way. Below is a brief summary of this year's project:

Fruit trees planted: 6,409

Students participated: 119

Workshops attendees: 122

Volunteer hours: 226.5

Total Salvadorans served by orcahrds per year: 3,017

Apperances on National Television: 1 

To date, this program has planted 23,262 fruit trees all across El Salvador. Although we are proud of this success, we still have a long way to reach our goal of planting 100,000 fruit trees by 2022. Therefore, we are asking that you consider making a donation today to the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation's important work in this country. Just one fruit tree can make all the difference in the lives of rural Salvadorans, bringing health, income, and pride in just one simple act. Thank you as always for your contributions and support of our work in El Salvador.

Saludos y abrazos from the whole FTPF team!

Fruit Trees for Uganda - Funding Update

Uganda 2014
Uganda 2014

Dear Friend,

What a busy summer! We are happily at work during our planting season, bringing fruit trees to all corners of the country and world. We just finished up a project in our Trees for Tribes program where we brought hundreds of trees to the Red Lake Chippewa Indians in Michigan (our second year in row there!). Next week FTPF staff and volunteers depart for the fourth consecutive year to El Salvador as part of a 10-year project to plant 100,000 fruit trees in that country.

While we are out in the fields many days, we are also hard at work to secure funds for next year's projects, including Fruit Trees for Uganda. As you can imagine, this is always a challenging part of being a not-for-profit organization, and also a very important piece. Therefore, we are asking our generous donors to help us along the way by making a  donation today. Every little bit helps, and allows us to spend less time at our desks and more time working to bring environmental, societal, and nutritional justice to those around the world who need it the most.

Remember to follow us on Facebook and Instagram in order to see live updates from our projects, and as always, thank you for your continued support and enthusiasm!

Best,

Lizzy Rainey

FTPF Special Projects Coordinator
