PLANT WITH PURPOSE

Poverty is a cycle. It can be broken.

 Around the world, 800 million people are living in poverty.
85 percent of them live in rural areas affected by an 
environmental crisis.

Plant With Purpose is an environmental organization that reverses the effects of poverty and deforestation across villages in Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Tanzania, Burundi, Mexico, Thailand, the Congo, and Ethiopia. We equip rural farming communities with the tools they need to create change by healing their land, growing in unity, and forming savings groups. By empowering locals, we seek to create lasting change.

In early 2017, I joined the Plant With Purpose team as the Marketing Specialist and eventual Creative Director. So far my work has taken me to Haiti, Thailand, and Tanzania, and to various parts of the United States to connect with supporters.
