TREES FOR LIFE
April 5, 2010
On my first visit to Trees for Life, I was extremely impressed with those who worked there and with the volunteers. After hearing from Mr. Mathur, I was telling him that I thought he was doing a wonderful work on behalf of those in very needy circumstances. He said that for him, the work made him feel as though he was privileged to "dance with the angels" each day.
In 2009, my husband & I were involved in a children's book drive in as many areas of Kansas as we could, to collect books to build a library in Ethopia. The person in Ethopia who made this request to Trees for Life,now provides a cart to regularly take more books to the rural areas. We saw a video of the cart entering a small village & the sides of the road were lined with children waiting to see that months delivery. Mr. Mathur was able to talk a large grocery chain into having boxes where people could drop the books when they did their grocery shopping.
I find the organization to be very caring; the volunteers that work reqularly there are very pleased with the outcomes of their efforts.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
Trees for Life began working in India, now it is working in some of the central American nations. They go where the need is. They also have studied the value of various kinds of trees which could help feed persons in many places in the world.
