We are delighted to update you on our contribution to the Planting Fruit Trees in Africa! For every basket of fruit we have delivered a Fruit Tree is planted. In three months 13 Trees have been planted in Malawi.
What is the campaign about?
Location: Malawi, Africa
Type of trees: Fruitful Office focus mainly on guava and papaya fruit trees, as well as some quick growing trees like senna siamea to provide firewood.
Working with: Fruitful Office are working with their friends at RIPPLE Africa (Charity No. 1103256), a UK Charity working in Malawi.
Who and how many: The trees are grown by schools, households and farms. Larger farm cooperatives plant 20-30,000 seedlings in nursery each year.
How: Seeds and tubes are provided and, in some cases, some equipment. Training is given, and there is constant monitoring during the year to ensure that as many tree seedlings as possible are ready for planting out in the rainy season. The tree seedlings are then planted out in orchards, woodlots and around household perimeters, and advice is given to provide the best ongoing care for the trees
Who benefits: Malawian families benefit from the trees to provide both fruit and firewood for the future for their own consumption and also, in some cases, income generation.
Every three months Fruitful Office updates AMCM Group along with their other clients on the campaign and how many fruit trees they have planted.
