While "trees planted anywhere helps everyone" is a statement that seems quite exaggerated, there is simple truth to the statement.
The Moringa Tree Project was created as a sustainable approach to combat poverty, malnutrition and environmental degradation This nutritional rich tree is grown by local people to provide nutrition for their families and communities. Your donations help people in rurual communities plant more trees and bottom line, each one planted helps the environment.
Trees provide oxygen, improve air quality, cools temperature, conserves water, preserves soil, and supports wildlife. Trees lower the air temperature and reduce the heat intensity of the greenhouse effect by maintaining low levels of carbon dioxide. Trees absorb carbon dioxide and removes and stores carbon while releasing the oxygen back into the air. For one year, a mature tree will absorb more than 48 pounds of carbon from the atmosphere and it releases oxygen in exchange.
This project is close to out heart because donations go to planting trees that provide powerful nutrition and that is a sustainable solution to a community challenge.
Thank you for your past donation. We hope you will consider a small monthly stipend perhaps monthly to help maintain the tree planting movement.
