Thank you to everyone who helped us start fundraising for our Brazil 2019 project! We are off to a great start and hope that you all know how much your support means to not only us at the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation, but to our partners Olho D’Água, and to the hundreds of families and school children who will be benefiting from these fruit trees.
2019 will be our 10-year anniversary working in the community of Mococa, and to celebrate we are focusing our fundraising efforts this holiday season here. Every donation makes a big difference and shows us that you belive in the power of fruit trees to bring hope, health, and happiness to Brazillian families.
Attached in our 2018 Annual Report, which highlights our program totals as well as the fact that for the eighth year in a row, 90 cents of every dollar was spent on our life-sustaining tree-planting programs! Please take a look, and consider contributing again towards Reforesting Brazil with Fruit Trees!
The Fruit Tree Planting Foundation is excited to announce our 2018 Island of Hawai'i orchard donations happening throughout the month of September!
We have an amazing lineup of recipeients including several schools, a farmers market, the Univerity of Hawaii at Hilo, a food sovreignty group, and a Native Hawaiian cultural center. FTPF staff have been busy visiting our partners here on the island, travelling from Kona to the Kohala coast and down into lower Puna to plan the orchards and select trees that will create bounitiful food forests. We will be planting a beautiful variety of trees specifically adapted for Hawai'i Island's unique climates, including ulu (breadfruit), avocado, mango, lychee, mountain apple, cacao, rambutan, carambola (starfruit), many types of citrus, jaboticaba, cinnamon, clove, and many, many more!
If you are on the islands and would like to join us at one of the planting events, please email our Programs Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org for dates/times. We'd love to have our generous supporters help plant the fruit trees they helped bring to fruition!
Mahalo nui loa (thank you very much)

El Salvador 2019

2018 FTPF school orchard planting in El Salvador
Hola amigos de FTPF!
We are so grateful for your support of our program to bring 100,000 fruit trees to the people of El Salvador. Over the past six years, we have been able to establish a nursery to grow thousands of fruit trees and plant and distribute those trees to schools, farmers, and families all across the country.
While at the moment our team is busy planting trees in other parts of the world, we are actively planning for year seven in El Salvador in 2019. We will continue our work to alliviate hunger, poor nutrition, deforestation, and poverty through the planting of fruit trees in this small, amazing, yet struggling nation.
Muchisimas gracias for your belief that fruit trees can be the answer to so many of El Salvador's pressing issues, and putting your faith in the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation to bring this program to those Salvadorans who need it the most.
