Want to be part of Plant With Purpose but not sure what you can do?

by Corbyn Small
Given the fact that Plant With Purpose is working internationally, hiring local indigenous people, training them in sustainable agriculture/savings and credit banking/discipleship, and then proliferating Plant With Purpose programs through those individuals, where do you fit in? If one of our main goals is to seek local ownership of the Plant With Purpose programs, what can you do to make a difference?
The answer is advocacy and there are a few ways that you can become a Plant With Purpose advocate. By becoming an advocate of PWP's programs and the positive work being done with rural subsistence level farmers and their families, you will be a voice for the voiceless.
We have vision trips a few times a year to visit Tanzania, the Dominican Republic, and Oaxaca, Mexico. These vision trips are designed to be the ultimate look into the work that is being done on ground level. The knowledge and experience gained in the field will give you the capacity to share Plant With Purpose's life changing work like a pro!
Currently we are looking for 1-2 more people to join Doug Satre, myself, and 6 others as we head down to Oaxaca, Mexico. Starting the trip in Oaxaca city, one of the most beautiful and historic cities in the new world, we will move on to visit a number of the 45 communities Plant With Purpose is working in. You have read about our programs here on the blog, on the webpage, and elsewhere, now join us in a life changing trip to spend time with the rural poor and be encouraged by the progress being made in one of the most deforested regions of Mexico. (Please contact Doug at Doug@PlantWithPurpose.org or 858 274-3718 asap for more info).
Dates: October 21-26, 2009
