Plant With Purpose, a Christian nonprofit, works at the nexus of poverty and environmental degradation to transform the lives and land of farming communities through environmental restoration, economic empowerment, and spiritual renewal. Founded in 1984, we catalyze the talent and ingenuity of farming families to transform entire watersheds. Motivated by the love of Jesus, we equip families to change their circumstances and land and to live with hope. We do this through sustainable agriculture training, land restoration, savings-led microfinance, and spiritual development.

Approximately 85 percent of the global poor live in rural areas (OPHI Global MPI Report, 2014) where environmental degradation is a primary driver of their poverty. Plant With Purpose partners with farmers in eight countries to transform lives. Agriculture training and reforestation improve crop productivity for food security and higher incomes; savings-led microfinance empowers farmers to maximize resources; and church mobilization equips congregations to grow in faith and serve the community.
