Lititz, PA, December 08, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- The Africa Transformation Initiative is working to train and inspire men and women to improve the quality of life in villages, rural areas, cities and nations. They want to help Africans move from a poverty and helplessness mentality to a position of hope and self-sustenance. They train and equip individuals who want to begin a small business so they can take care of their families to learn business and Godly values and mindsets. With the challenge of droughts, they work with food relief, too. ATI has worked to dig wells as an avenue to supply clean water for domestic use as well as agriculture. Planting trees and beginning nurseries is also part of their plan to assist in the goal of transforming Africa to become a successful continent.
Deforestation in many regions of Eastern Africa has resulted in a decline of rainfall and perpetuates famine since crops don't have enough water to grow and thrive. Increased forest cover is needed to keep the desert from encroaching on the fertile areas. With a better balanced Eco-system, sustainable farming and gardening will improve. Nations require 10% forest cover to maintain adequate rainfall for climate balance. ATI members are encouraging church members and leaders and others in African communities to plant trees -some to produce fruits and some just for the sake of improving the rainfall.
So a simple donation of $5 will plant 50 trees and just $1 donation will plant 10 trees as a way to improve various African communities.
Thank you for joining with us to improve the lives of many in various communities in Africa. To learn more or donate online visit www.africatransformation.com
