Oranges. Mangoes. Bananas. Papayas. Kids love fruit! And with essential nutrients like vitamin C and antioxidants, it protects them from deadly diseases. Give fruit trees like these and you’ll feed children, provide income, and help yield seedlings so more families can grow their own fruit.
A fruit tree orchard can produce enough fruit for vital income in just two to three years. Tree seedlings from the fully-grown fruit trees can then be used to help another family lift themselves out of poverty.
Besides continually multiplying, your green gift is also good for the environment. Planting fruit trees prevents deforestation — a major cause of soil erosion that leads to poor farmland and devastating floods.
In Ethiopia, the gift of fruit trees helped Bezalem Dinku start an apple tree farm that moved his family from poverty to abundance. “I was weak and unable to stand on my feet,” he says. “But with…World Vision support, I am to walk with my feet and [be a] source of income for the others too.”
Bezalem used to earn 90 cents a day — not enough to feed his family of five. “We shouldered all the burdens that poverty could bear,” he says. But the gift of fruit trees and agricultural training from World Vision changed his family’s life forever.
Now his fruit tree business employs three people and brings in as much $23,000 in just two harvests. His three children are healthy, well-nourished, attend the best school in the area, and are dreaming big about the future.

Your gift is a sacred trust. We promise to honor your generosity and use your donation in the most effective way possible. The gift options shown reflect World Vision projects and the suggested donation amounts are based on periodic surveys of the countries we serve. Each item is representative of the gift category in which it appears, and donations will be used to provide assistance within that gift category where it is needed most. When you give any animal gift, a portion of the gift may also help provide watering sources, farming assistance, hunger relief, and other related essentials as needed.
The multiplying effect from grants and donated goods may change throughout the year on identical or similar offers due to variations in the start and end dates of donor grants and our programs.
