Project Report | Jan 27, 2020
6,604 fruit trees planted along the Amazon

By Lizzy Rainey | Programs Manager

“These thousands of fruit trees are reforesting areas of the rainforest in a time when the entire world is feeling deeply concerned for deforestation, and it’s being done in the right way."

As Brian Landever, Director of our in-country partner CONAPAC, says above, FTPF's work is in the Peruvian Amazon is critical in combating deforestation while at the same time providing income, nutrition, and training to families in rural river communities.

During our visit, FTPF staff and volunteers worked together with our partners and more than 300 community volunteers and students to plant 450 trees at schools and in public spaces, as well as distribute trees directly to families. Everyone we worked with was incredibly grateful, hardworking, and extremely committed to reforesting their communities with fruit trees. Not a day went by during our trip that FTPF was not thanked for the gift of these trees, and this gratitude was evident in the way the trees were cared for from the moment they were put in the ground. 

Thank you for supporting this project and believing in the power of fruit trees to create a more fruitful, verdant, and just world for Amazon families in Peru!
