Trees for Life Program - Planting Hope
Olive trees are not only one of the main sources of income for small farmers, but more importantly, a hope for a better future, where livelihoods are sustained and families live in dignity.
Canaan’s 'Trees for Life’ program is all about positive aspirations of better life conditions for farmers, and sustainability of their way of living.
The program works with farmers to plant new plots with olive and almond trees, expand the size of current farms as well as plant new ones, and bring in new farmers to the sector, especially young people so as to inject new blood and energy in the sector and plant the seeds for long-term sustainability.
In the past 10 years, the project has planted more than 130,000 trees with support from grassroots movement partner organizations and businesses.
In partnership with the Land of Canaan Foundation in the U.S., the 'Trees for Life” program has a campaign where individual donors can buy trees to be donated to farmers. The program has been a huge success as people are paying as little as US$ 20 to donate trees to much needed farmer families. Visit the Land of Canaan Foundation to learn more about the program.
