Our One Universal Family has planted and dedicated more than 1,000,000 trees!

Today we reached an incredible milestone!
More than 1,000,000 trees have been planted and dedicated by our One Universal Family!

Since the Global Tree Initiative (GTI) started in concept in the Fall of 2019, people in more than 50 countries have participated in planting their trees, growing our forests, and saving the lives of our future generations.
Thank YOU for being part of this collective success we celebrate, together!

This morning, we received a report of 50,000 trees, from the Oyani Christian Self Help Group in Kenya. This takes us over the 1M trees marker. The group representative, Charles Mwiriza, dedicated the trees they are growing in their local nursery. Thank you for your hard work, Charles and Oyani Christian Self Help Group!

Have a look at the global tree-planting map. Make sure you see your country and your town represented on the map.

The job is not finished. We have only just begun.
Please, join us. Plant your tree. Share your story with us.

This celebration shows how much we can achieve when we work together as One Universal Family. It reminds us of Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu’s explanation of the Zulu proverb, Ubuntu.

“Ubuntu speaks particularly about the fact that you can’t exist as a human being in isolation. It speaks about our interconnectedness… We think of ourselves far too frequently as just individuals, separated from one another, whereas you are connected and what you do affects the whole world. When you do well, it spreads out; it is for the whole of humanity.”

Thank you for believing in our project! Thank you for helping us grow!

With joy and appreciation,
The Global Tree Initiative team.
