Fruit Tree & Crop Programme

Planting fruit trees and supporting village agriculture cooperatives feature
high on our list of projects for village development.

Trees provide food and shade. They benefit the environment and reduce soil erosion. Giving fruit trees and food crops are a simple and sustainable way to help people feed and sustain themselves. Essentially, enabling agriculture is giving people a livelihood, which empowers them to work their way out of poverty.

Once our fruit trees reach maturity, they become a life-long source of food for a poor family. As a source of income, they go a long way when nurtured with care. Families can sell or trade their surplus fruit and fruit products to buy other foods and needful items.

ILM UK promotes the planting of fruit trees in remote villages, across countries affected most by hunger and poverty. The fruit trees we plant vary depending on the region, climate and natural diet of the people who will benefit. In Gaza we gift olives. In Pakistan and India, the trees we plant range from mangos to apricots. Below is a list of the kind of trees we gift.

Olive

Mango

Papaya

Apples

Orange

Pomegranate

Apricots

Peaches

Guava

Figs

Banana

Nasberries

Dates

Coconuts

In some cases, farmers in the villages we work with require seeds instead of trees. Often the seeds are for maize or vegetable crops. Along with the seeds we also provide tools for planting and cultivation, as well as fertilizers.
