For years, villagers cut down Haiti’s trees. Then, erosion destroyed the farmlands. Soon, families had nothing to eat. Today, planting trees — reforestation — is their hope for a future.


When you’re poor — utterly destitute — it is impossible to think beyond immediate needs. Food, fuel. A place to sleep. Long-term concerns are tomorrow’s problem. In desperation, Haitian villagers cut down trees to get fuel for cooking. Then the hurricanes came and eroded the farmland. Now family farmers have nothing to cook. A peasant organization in Haiti wants help planting trees so they can farm again.


If we provide 120,000 saplings, supplies and training for the 155 members of the peasant organization in Haiti, they will reforest the land and once again provide a sustainable income for their families through farming.

Long-Term Impact

With more trees, there will be less erosion. The farmers will be able to plant crops again and feed their families. More importantly, 155 families will become self-sufficient — and the entire earth benefits from the effects of massive reforestation.
