TTFF is working in 18 countries currently, planting fruit trees and assisting smallholder farmers in tropical regions. We also help to develop local self-supporting businesses selling trees, harvesting fruit, and marketing of food products.
We got started in the Caribbean area in Jamaica and Haiti. Over time we’ve branched out. Now we work across the Caribbean in the Bahamas, Barbados, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, St. Vincent, and St. Croix. We work across Africa in Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Tanzania, and Uganda. And we work in Central & South America primarily with Costa Rica & Suriname, as well as Belize, Honduras, and Trinidad & Tobago. We have established great relationships with several of these countries, and you can check out some of the work we do in each one!
TTFF has also donated modest numbers of trees to Pakistan, and coloring books have been distributed in Cambodia and Indonesia. Our vendor, Cultivaris, paid for shipping of trees to local farm groups.
We continually get requests to work in new countries. We are keen to expand, but we need to manage our resources, and of course we need to check into the climate for suitability for fruit trees. And we can’t be everywhere personally so we need a trustworthy reliable group of partners to work with.
We’ll keep you posted as we make progress!
