Plant With Purpose


Mission Statement

Plant With Purpose works at the nexus of poverty and environmental degradation to transform the lives and land of farming communities through environmental restoration, economic empowerment, and spiritual renewal. 


Founded in 1984, Plant With Purpose is a Christian nonprofit that catalyzes the talent and ingenuity of farming families to transform entire watersheds. Of people living in poverty worldwide, up to 85 percent live in rural areas (OPHDI, 2014). Most struggle to grow enough food to feed their families and send their children to school. Plant With Purpose equips impoverished farming families to change their circumstances and land and to live with hope.

Program Details

Plant With Purpose works through sustainable agriculture training, land restoration, savings-led microfinance, and local leadership development. Specific aspects of their approach include agroforestry, tree nurseries and planting, farmer field schools, Village Savings and Loans Associations (VSLA's), and business trainings.
