The Giving Tree
Another way to support a child in their education is through the Giving Tree Project. With a donation of $20 a child will receive a mango tree for the family to plant and care for. After five years of care, the trees will begin to produce fruit. This fruit can be eaten or sold - benefiting the child's nutrition and financial ability to attend school. This is a great lesson in investment for the future. In addition, mango trees have very deep roots and will help maintain soil erosion which is a big issue in the Haitian mountains.
Donors will receive a photo of the child they have supported, with their tree.
