Plant With Purpose is an international Christian nonprofit organization working at the intersection of poverty alleviation, environmental restoration, and spiritual renewal.
We are committed to holistic sustainable development through local empowerment, regenerative agriculture, reforestation, building economic resilience, and restoring relationships throughout all of creation.
Plant With Purpose’s programs equip farming families around the world to increase farm yields, heal damaged ecosystems, improve nutrition, and increase household savings and opportunities. This integrated approach solves two major issues facing the world today: environmental degradation and rural poverty.
Every three years, our team conducts an in-depth impact study applying evaluation best practices. Research was further validated through comparison to our prior triennial analysis (2015-2017) which indicates consistency of results and trends.
