We need people like you! We start with small steps, otherwise, we are not getting any closer to a more sustainable planet.
We look at planting trees as a token of confidence. It expresses faith in the future and we are happy to be able to work with you for a better future. With this climate action, you plant a tree and you offer a farmer training in a Farmer Field School where they learn and exchange sustainable cultivation practices.
What happens with your contribution?
Now, you probably ask yourself 'well nice idea, but what happens with my €15, -?'
We dedicate €5, - so that the farmer can plant your tree. To stimulate ownership among farmers, we use a voucher system where farmers choose what tree species they plant. When farmers choose their own tree themselves, they take better care of this tree. Hereby, we ensure that your tree is in good hands.
Now, you probably think 'all right, but what about the other €10, -?' Yes, we reserve €5, - for the NGO Shalom who trains farmers on sustainable agricultural practices. Another €5, - is used for organic products for farmers, such as neem oil as biopesticide and press cake as biofertilizer.
