Why we are planting fruit trees in Peru...

Hunger, malnutrition, poverty, and environmental degradation in the Peruvian Amazon are hurting local families. Fruit trees provide perennial sources of nutrition, income, and environmental benefits that will help these families now and for decades to come. As Michele Briceño, a member of our local team born and raised in nearby Iquitos told FTPF during our trip to the region in late 2019:

“In my humble opinion, I am sure that the parents believe from the bottom of their hearts that this project will create a better future for their children through sustainable agriculture that does not take away from their lands, their customs, and that allows them to live in harmony with the environment.”

Please consider making a donation or sharing this project with your friends and family so we can continue to support sustainable livelihoods for local families in the Peruvian Amazon!
