It’s a Process, Rather than an End Goal

Fruit For Life plant fruit tree as a  long-term solutions for a number of pressing issues affecting our community. Our most significant causes are those that are often brushed aside by most.

Taking the concept of Green Pakistan (One Billion Tree) one step ahead, Our Idea is to do Fruit plantation along with shade trees which not only provide positive step towards climate change and its hazards but also encourage healthy eating, combat hunger, food scarcity, nutritional deficiencies

It is a step towards responsible human beings, by instilling nurturing habits in the next generation to live in harmony with the environment.

Our battle is against indifference restoring degraded ecosystems can yield steady improvements over long timeframes.

Economists estimate that investments in ecosystem restoration can generate multiple benefits for societies worth US$10 for every US$1 invested.
We consider it a step in the right direction towards poverty alleviation and recognizing the central role that women plays for effective forest restoration and reforestation.
