Where We Work
Tree of Life is helping to build a hopeful future for the poorest of the poor in various countries throughout the world.
Our workers Sam & Karin have been active as nurses in remote mountain villages in India for over 20 years. They educate about health care and share the gospel. They also supervise the issuing of microcredit in the form of chickens, piglets or sheep.
Tree of Life has been supporting the building of an organic, self-sufficient farm since 2003. In 2014, the training center became completely self-sufficient. The focus is now on training local farmers in Foundations for Farming so that they can teach this to their families and neighbors.
Tree of Life organizes agricultural training (FFF) in Kenya and is building a team to realize a training center.
We are, together with our partner Stand as One, developing a training center for village development in Malawi. There is also a primary school on site. A demonstration garden is being built for training in sustainable agriculture, cooking and other areas, and a food forest has been created. The center aims to become self-sufficient and provides employment to people within the 21 surrounding villages. It is estimated that we will reach about 12,000 people.
Kees and Willemijn have been working in Thailand since 1978, where they spread the Gospel. They visit cancer patients and cook for them. They also visit people in prison and Kees leads church services in the Wiang Pa Pao region.
Petra & Sousa live and work in Angola where they train farming families in Foundations for Farming. The Good News is being shared and a training and health center is currently being built for childbirth, medical treatment and care for mother and child.
In Uganda, we train farmers in sustainable agriculture and plant fast growing trees, suitable for the production of charcoal.
Youth unemployment in Curaçao is high. The training center offers young people vocational training in sustainable agriculture.
