If you’re like most people, many of the items on 2020’s to-do lists have been tentatively rescheduled for… later. Our friends in Bolivia, however, have been busier than ever in their reforestation efforts. Since January, four Outreach-affiliated communities have planted 3000 — 3000!! — trees in and around their respective horizons, improving their soil’s quality, as well as their future opportunities.

Everyone plants, everyone benefits! 

With love, small trees grow big, and the bigger the trees, the greater the benefits. Besides long-term upgrades like cleaner air and more fertile soil, firewood fetches a pretty penny at market, as do the countless nutritious mushrooms that spring up in the trees’ shade, harvested by community members. Tree cheers for community-led development!!

With the right tools and a community’s-worth of capable helpers, reforestation’s not as tricky as it sounds. 

Talk about “ground-level empowerment.”
