Ki kati friends,

As we gear up for our trip to Uganda next month to spread the beauty and bounty of fruit trees, 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 Jinja in April 2019 to help us plant and distribute more than 85,000 fruit trees to rural families, students, and farmers. You can learn more and sign up to join us on our website: Volunteer in Uganda 2019

I myself served as a volunteer on this very trip with FTPF in 2014 and am happy to share some my personal experience, or you can also read some other previous volunteers’ experiences here: Volunteer 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!

Weebale!

Thank you to everyone who donated to Fruit Trees for Uganda this year! With your supportover 47,000 fruit trees were planted and distributed to students and families in the districts of Jinja and Kaliro in 2018.

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 Fruit Trees for Uganda before the year ends!

Dear friends of FTPF,

We are so grateful for your support of our program to bring fruit trees to the people of Uganda. Over the past five years, we have been able to establish a nursery to grow tens of 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 six in Uganda in 2019. We will continue our work to alliviate hunger, poor nutrition, deforestation, and poverty through the planting of fruit trees in this amazing yet struggling nation.

Thanks you for your belief that fruit trees can be the answer to so many of Ugandas's pressing issues, and putting your faith in the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation to bring this program to those Ugandans who need it the most.

Webale nyo (thank you very much)!

After a very fruitful 2018 in Uganda, in which FTPF planted and distributed over 47,000 fruit trees to farmers and families throughout the District of Jinja, our friends and partners at the African Partnership on Climate Change Coalition on moving forward with next year's round of saplings. 

FTPF has funded a nursery on the outskirts of Jinja in order to house the many thousands of trees that will be grown and distributed in the coming years. Additionally, the nursery serves as a community learning space that trains locals on sustainable growing techniques, proper planting protocol, and as a demonstration plot for organic orchard maintenance--and, the nursery employs villagers and neighbors as maintenance and labor to create more jobs for the community!

Overall, we are so happy with this partnership and program that will continue to serve both rural and urban Ugandan families through environmental protection, healthy food, and personal economies. THANK YOU for your continued support, and please consider donating $20 dollars today to help the cause!

Ola friends,

We are writing from Brazil, where we kicked off the 2018 planting season with 2,500 fruit trees for families and students in Mococa, Sao Paolo!

Also in store this season are projects in Uganda, Arizona, El Salvador, Guatemala, New York City, Pittsburgh, Minnesota tribes, Miami, Houston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Peru, and we will wrap up the year with our first school orchard donations on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Thank you for all your support, and we will keep sending you updates from the field as we continue putting happy, healthy new fruit trees in the ground. (PS: check out the link below for a news clip featuring FTPF's work on Brazil television!)
Muito obrigada,
