Sylvia's delicious "mango flowers"

Hola friends,

During our time in El Salvador earlier this summer, we visited the Los Decidios Cooperative to conduct aftercare workshops and document previously planted trees in the community. As we were leaving, we were asked to wait for a surprise...

We were presented with these beautiful "flores de mango" (mango flowers) made by cooperative member Sylvia from fruit grown on trees donated by FTPF.  Many of the cooperative members sell "flores de mango" as well as whole mangos along the highways leading in and out of the capital city of San Salvador to earn extra income for their families. These were some of the most delicious mangos we've ever tasted, made extra special knowing they are products of FTPF's work and progress in El Salvador over the years!

Thanks to each and every one of you for your continued support of our mission to plant 100,000 fruit trees in El Salvador in order to support hard-working Salvadorans like Sylvia!

Muchisimas gracias,

The FTPF Team

Hola friends of FTPF,

We are off for the seventh year in a row to the beautiful country of El Salvador, where we will be planting and distributing thousands of fruit trees to rural Salvadoran farmers and families. We will be sharing live updates from the field, so be sure to follow along on our Facebook and Instagram pages, and we will also be sending a summary here on GlobalGiving once we return. We will also be visiting Guatemala after our projects in El Salvador, so stay tuned for more information on the tree-planing happening there as well.

Thank you for your continued support, and here's to a fruitful future for all Salvadoran people!

Hola friends,

As we gear up for our trip to El Salvador this year to continue our goal to plant 100,000 fruit trees around the country, we wanted to let our generous supporters know that we are also inviting you to join us on this eco-tree-planting-adventure!

We are welcoming hard-working, adventurous, and caring friends of FTPF to travel with our staff to El Salvador in July 2019 to help us plant and distribute thousands of fruit trees to rural families, students, and farmers. You can learn more and sign up to join us on our website: Volunteer in El Salvador 2019

I myself served as a volunteer on this very trip with FTPF in 2013 and am happy to share some my personal experience, or you can also read some other previous volunteers’ experiences here: Volunteer El Salvador Reviews

Thank you to everyone for believing in the power of fruit trees to change the world, and we hope to see you in the field soon!

Thank you to everyone who donated to 100,000 Fruit Trees for El Salvador this year! With your support, we planted over 4,000 fruit trees with cooperatives, schools, women’s groups, municipalities and families throughout La Paz, El Salvador.

Attached in our 2018 Annual Report, which highlights our program outputs for the year, 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 towards 100,000 Fruit Trees for El Salvador before the year ends!

Have a very fruitful holiday season and a happy New Year!

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.
