Fruit trees in Brazil: "Overall, the students, the school itself is a happier place."

Fruit trees are changing the lives of students and families in southeastern Brazil. With a decade of planting trees at schools, public spaces, and family homes, FTPF's project in Mococa is having real, tangible effects. During our last trip, one school director said of her thriving orchard:

“The school overall has gotten happier, the students are happier. There is more movement and life to the school, more people playing and engaging with the environment, there is more shade and fresher air. Often you will find a student with a purple mouth from the mora (mulberries) or a red tongue from the acerola (cherries). Overall, the students, the school itself is a happier place.” 

We want every school in Mococa to have this experience. Please help us by donating today to bring thousands of fruit trees to Brazil to create greener, cleaner, and more abundant schools and communities just like this one!
