Fruit Tree Planting Foundation Reviews
Uganda Holistic Health Crusade
Submitted by Dr Ren - NJ | January 13, 2017
I have volunteered with FTPF in various locations throughout the US and abroad during the past half decade, however the 2016 Uganda trip was my first time joining them in Africa for their ongoing project. I feel the itinerary was very well outlined and felt safe and supported in my decision to volunteer so far away from home based on the professionalism, communication, and adaptability I have experienced with the organizers as well as the receptiveness and hospitality of the communities they choose to partner with. I would highly recommend the Uganda trip and any trip FTPF organizes for that matter to new volunteers because although each one is hard work, they are each uniquely a once in a lifetime, life changing and planet enhancing experience!

This trip was the gateway to quite literally changing my life. It was the first trip I took with the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation back in 2014. I had lived and worked abroad before, yet I had never done a volunteer trip such a this one before, and boy, were my expectations met and surpassed.
For 10 days, we traveled around rural El Salvador, from the city to the mountains to the beach, planting thousands of fruit trees with hundreds of people. Afterward the plantings, we often spent time with families in their homes, sharing meals and conversations about the challenges facing their local community, their country, and the world at large. It was inspiring and challenging, and from then on I continued volunteering with FTPF an entire year, following them all over the world on projects that taught me not only about plants and trees, but about people and our world. A sincere thank you to FTPF!
