Love Heals plants 10 trees per each design sold. Through our partnering with Trees for the Future, to date we have planted over 1.4 million trees. Together, we are improving the livelihoods of impoverished farmers by revitalizing degraded lands. Since 1989, with their experience in planting over 115 million trees all over the world, we have demonstrated the transformative power of trees in helping people break out of the poverty trap while also addressing the global environment. Today, our work in East and West Africa is helping to build a world where people can leave a legacy of opportunity through sustainable practices and productive lands for future generations.
Love Heals's past projects include support to the country of Ethiopia, where entire forests have been cut down leaving the population subject to the effects of flooding, resulting in much of the remaining farmland washing away.
Our current projects involve the countries of Uganda and Senegal. With our support in developing garden forests, Love Heals provides farming families with sustainable sources of food, livestock fodder, fuel, and forest products to consume and sell at nearby markets.
We believe that dignity and opportunity doesn't grow from a handout, it flourishes from jobs. Through our facilities in California and in Bali, Indonesia, Love Heals is proud to provide over 100 full time jobs to our amazing staff. Although charity has always been at the roots of our cause, we strongly believe that the dignity gained from willing and capable individuals working full time jobs is much stronger than much of the temporary assistance programs out there today.
Many of our talented artisans reign from generations of jewelry and crafts workers, and are proud to keep their traditions alive. All of our workers are paid above average salaries, allowing a greater capacity to invest in the long term wellbeing of their families.
