“… on either side of the river is the tree of life, which bears fruit twelve times, giving its fruit every month, and the leaves of the trees are for the healing of the nations.” Revelation 22:14

Tree of Life mission

We are offering poor farmer a hopeful future by investing in knowledge, (organic) seeds and compost. We aim to gradually help communities to put an end to poverty. Recent reports show that the first 51 farmers in Cameroon who participated in our program, harvested four times as much revenue as before. 

Our main focus will be to train local trainers, who on their turn will train small scale farmers.

Foundations for Farming

We would like to introduce you to foundation Foundations for Farming (FFF). We are currently giving shape to cooperation in Cameroon. FFF has developed an agricultural method for (small-scale) farmers. This method is sustainable, requires minimal investment and can provide farmers with a living. In addition, the Gospel is integrated in their teaching, using Biblical principles for agriculture. Below are the basic principles that the foundation uses during agriculture.

Foundations for Farming Principles

1 ) On time

The preparations are started on time so that the farmers are ready when the rain comes and they can sow. In this way we are responsible for the time that God gives us. Plan well, prepare well and start work on time, so that plants can take full advantage of the seasons.

2) At standard

They encourage farmers to work at a high quality level and have standard guidelines, so that it is clear to people what they can do. For example, corn is sown in plant holes that are 60 cm apart and there is 75 cm between the rows. Thus they bring order and structure to the fields.

3) Without waste

Everything God gives in nature is carefully used with the amenities that God gives. Thus the soil is covered with the residual materials of the plants; in this way dehydration is prevented and the soil is enriched. Compost is also placed in the plant holes so that the soil is extra enriched and the soil life is stimulated. No time, soil, water, sunlight, seeds, nutrients and energy are wasted. No material or land is burned.

4) With joy

They work with pleasure because they work in God’s beautiful creation. They also know that God cares for them and sees them. They are aware of the love of God that becomes most visible in what Jesus did for us. Whoever does this without self-pity, blaming others, jealousy or complaint, but works with a grateful heart for God, He wants to reward by taking away fear and insecurity and turning it into hope and joy.

Tree of Life

These wonderful principles to which we as a foundation can say ‘amen’. Foundations for Farming has a lot of knowledge and experience with this way of farming. This farming method works! Many farmers have been pulled out of poverty. We are happy and grateful that we may use their knowledge to apply in our Tree of Life project. For more information about foundation Foundations for Farming, please refer to their website. We complement our training with financial education.

An Android APP!!

We developed an app for Android. It contains the content of Foundations for Farming, the Crown African money map and the Tree of Life self reliance course.

It is available offline to trainers and farmers can look things up easily. The app also provides the opportunity for monitoring and reporting the progress being made.

Do you want to participate?

As a foundation we are very grateful we can have an impact in poor peoples lives, with the help of our donors. At the same time there are so many people to be reached still. Can we count on your support and prayers?
