Plant with Purpose is a Christian, environmental non-profit organization that transforms lives in rural areas worldwide where poverty is caused by deforestation and unsustainable land use. Focusing on a holistic solution to poverty, Plant with Purpose has been restoring the lives of the rural poor for over 25 years by planting trees, creating economic opportunity through micro-credit, implementing sustainable agriculture programs, and encouraging spiritual renewal. Members of FPC traveled to the Dominican Republic in 2012, 2015 and 2019 to experience first-hand how Plant with Purpose is “helping well” and to uplift and celebrate with staff and participants. FPC sponsored PWP's recent successful work in the village of Loma Verde and now supports efforts in the Ozama River watershed. Individuals sponsor the cocoa bean growing and processing village of Maizal. Plant With Purpose’s indigenous staff works alongside rural villages to develop leadership and bring improved agricultural practices to these areas. PWP’s work is sustainable, with a defined exit strategy that frees the communities from dependency and allows Plant with Purpose to move on to help other areas.
