Your donation through this Gift That Gives More™ plants thirty fruit tree seedlings -- avocado, mango, citrus, jack-fruit, and papaya -- in a "Millennium Village" in Africa.

The Millennium Development Goals are the world's time-bound and quantified targets for tackling the many dimensions of extreme poverty by 2015, and now you can help with the first goal: Eradicate Extreme Hunger and Poverty.

How can fruit trees help? These fruit trees are an essential part of a larger program to provide diverse, high-value food crops in some of the poorest regions of Africa.

Millennium Promise, our partner in this work, created the Millennium Villages project, a bold, innovative model for helping rural African communities lift themselves out of extreme poverty. With simple solutions like providing high-yield seeds, fertilizers, medicines, drinking wells and materials to build school rooms and clinics, Millennium Promise is effectively combating extreme poverty and nourishing communities into a new age of health and opportunity. Currently, Millennium Promise works in 80 villages across ten different countries -- Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Mali, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, Tanzania, and Uganda.
