Fruit Trees for Fruit Production — A gift of fruit trees provides families with a long-lasting source of nutrition and livelihood.

Mozambique-MapProgram Goal:   Provide 500 fruit trees to children and families in the Gondola district of the Manica Province in central Mozambique. Fruit trees form the foundation of a thriving market economy for many families around the world, and they are especially needed in Mozambique’s impoverished villages. Families with few resources who receive fruit trees to plant will have a source of nutritional food and a way to earn income from the sale of surplus fruit.

Every day the poorest of families in Mozambique struggle to survive without adequate food and income. A gift of three to four trees (mango, orange and avocado) to each family can completely change a family’s situation. The trees will provide an excellent source of vitamin-rich produce that improves the family’s nutrition and also provides income through the sale of surplus fruit at the local market. With increasing financial independence, parents are better equipped to meet the basic needs of their children — medication, education, clothing, bedding and more.

Your gift helps move families from dependence to sustainable independence — giving children and parents the satisfaction of contributing to their own well-being and future economic security. Our goal is to provide 200 mango, 100 orange and 200 avocado trees to the region through 2013.

Expected Results:  This initiative will directly benefit children and families of Mozambique’s Gondola district, providing a sustainable source of nutrition and income. These fast-growing trees will begin bearing within two to three years, allowing children to pick fruit in their own yards. With vitamin-rich mangos, oranges and avocados to improve their diet, children will have fewer incidences of disease related to malnutrition. Family incomes will also improve. A gift of fruit trees represents hope and opportunity.

Fruit trees provide a source of nutrition and income for children and their families.
