Plant with Purpose
Plant With Purpose, a Christian international nonprofit, reverses deforestation and poverty around the world by transforming the lives of the rural poor. Of the 815 million hungry people in the world, 85 percent are farmers who live in rural areas where environmental degradation is a primary culprit of their poverty. Plant With Purpose equips impoverished farming families to grow out of poverty and in God's love through sustainable agriculture training, land restoration, savings-led microfinance, church mobilization and local leadership development.
Plant With Purpose became an official ministry partner to FPC in 2017 and a tree was planted for each FPC member to mark the beginning of the partnership. FPC members are sponsoring a region in Oaxaca, Mexico with Plant With Purpose where pine-needle baskets are locally made and sold as a sustainable and environmentally-friendly product. www.plantwithpurpose.org
