Merry Christmas from Plant With Purpose
Written by Plant With Purpose on December 25, 2014 in General
The angel of the Lord proclaimed to the shepherds,
“Do not be afraid! I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people. The Savior-yes, the Messiah-has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David!”
Thank you for partnering with Plant With Purpose to bring GREAT JOY to many families as they improve their circumstances, provide for their children, and live with God-given hope and dignity.
YOUR PARTNERSHIP IS CHANGING LIVES IN REAL AND LASTING WAYS:
- 20,603 families in 367 communities are being transformed through our life-changing programs. We know that rooted trees lead to rooted families; these partners have planted 12.6 million trees to date.
- 658 Village Savings and Loan Association (VSLA) groups are actively saving cash, with a total member equity of $1.57 million USD. The number of VSLA groups nearly doubled in 2014, meaning increased savings and access to credit for 17,000 participants.
- 310 local churches have received training and support and are effectively addressing community needs and increasing discipleship efforts.
Wishing you a blessed Christmas!
