Planting Together is a platform to launch people just like YOU into effective ministry in Africa. There exists right now an amazing opportunity to touch regions that have had little contact with Westerners. Special skills are NOT required, but you will need a servant’s heart and be prepared for primitive conditions and warm weather!
Most teams will plant or prune for aprox one week and then spend an additional week with lokal charitable ministries (get current information on charitable partner projects by clicking here.)
Below are the dates and conditions of reforestation projects active at this time.
