Get, Set to plant a Green Gift of hope and life.  Join Trees4Life Campaign in our  latest project to #support Palestinian farmers and help them sustain their livelihoods through the plantation of 2,000 olive or almond saplings in Jenin, Palestine.   Since December 2015 we have raised funds to plant 1200 trees.  To make a contribution and help us reach our target click here.

Why Olives and Almonds
The olive tree is a blessed tree and holds very sentimental values for Palestinian farmers whose families have owned the land for generations.  Olive trees have been the main source of income for over a million Palestinians for many generations.   The finest almonds are harvested from 15 villages within the West Bank.  But in the last decade much of the Palestinian land has been made inaccessible for the farmers. Their crops have been demolished, destroyed or stolen by settlers.

bassema2Help Support Palestinian Farmers
Please help us to support Palestinian farmers, whether they are starter farmers, small farmers,  women farmers or farmers who have recently cultivated lands that have been subjected to field  or tree destruction, to sustain and enhance their living environment and give them continuous hope and commitment to support their young families.

We will be working with Zaytoun and the Palestine Fair Trade Association (PFTA) to plant the saplings in Jenin, Palestine and help replace the ones destroyed.  Planting takes place each year in January/February.  We are now fundraising for the next round in December 2017 towards the next planting season in January 2018.
