Plant With Purpose is a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to helping the rural poor. Our three-part, environmental, economic, and spiritual approach to sustainable development transforms the communities and people we work with in the following ways.
1. Improved Quality of Life
As a result of our work, children and adults enjoy improved health, children attain higher levels of education and women experience greater equality and economic security.
2. Restored Relationships
Plant With Purpose initiatives help strengthen family relationships, the relationship between people and their environment, and the relationship between people and God.
3. Self Sufficiency
Our synergistic model of environmental and economic development teaches people to farm in ways that also protect the land, ensuring their long-term prosperity. As a result, these communities continue to thrive long after our work there ends.
The Creation Care Radio Hour program is released every two weeks and is dedicated to topics in creation care. This is the last episode for 2011.
