Project #24 | Re-forestation Project in Ethiopia
Our partnership with Eden Reforestation Projects
This partner project helped rejuvenate the land in Ethiopia that had been rendered virtually barren through years of total deforestation. The reforestation process helped provide jobs for local residents; providing economic security for their families for years to come. We provided employment to eco-workers serving with ERP. The revenue earned by the local residents helped provide an avenue out of poverty, allowing them to obtain a level of security for their families. Many of the people who have gone through ERP’s program can now send their children to school, and have started their own micro-enterprises. Most of the people can now afford to have their family visit a doctor when they get sick, and are able to purchase a balanced diet.

Thank you for making this possible!
Our movement is grassroots, to us that not only means the work on the ground is led by local leaders with the support of the community, but it also means that we raise the funds for our projects through everyday donors just like you. In addition to all the donors that gave $25, $100, or $250 and the campaigners that ran a race or donated their birthday to raise funds, we also want to thank our generous business, school, and faith sponsors who believed in our work and joined the movement.
If you want to support future projects like this you can make a donation to our jobs and skills fund.
