Target demographics: Instead of targeting specific projects or countries, people in developing communities come to us for help. We work hard to make it known to the people of these communities that there is help for them to save their lands and their way of life - and that it's FREE because concerned people here (like you) are aware of the critical problems they are facing and want to help.

Direct beneficiaries per year: 17,100,000 trees planted in 2010, Thousands of lives changed

Geographic areas served: Africa, Asia, Central America, South America, Caribbean

Programs: - On-site country programs

- Loret Miller Ruppe Center For Sustainable Development

Mission:
Trees for the Future is an agroforestry resource center, working with people to improve livelihoods and restore degraded lands to sustainable productivity through planting beneficial trees.
Results:
2010 saw a year of significant growth for the international tree planting program. We are presently working in 28 developing countries: Belize, Bolivia, Brazil, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Columbia, Ecuador, Ethiopia, Ghana, Guinea, Haiti, Honduras, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Malawi, Mauritania, Nepal, Nicaragua, Niger, the Philippines, Rwanda, Senegal, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. TREES has been able to provide more on-site technical support to these projects and this has resulted in a major increase to approximately 17,100,000 trees planted in 2010 -- about 21% more than in the previous year.
