Hi Dylan,

Thanks for reaching out. Your work sounds really great too. Our Program Officer Jared White works closely with our DRC and Burundi programs and would love to connect with you. His email is jared@plantwithpurpose.org. Looking forward to talking more!

Thanks,
Ellen

Hi Kate,

Thanks! We just posted responses to the expert feedback.
 
You are correct about our outcomes in Burundi. We are excited that farming families are experiencing transformation through our programs in the midst of political unrest and economic uncertainty.
 
Plant With Purpose could not implement this transformational work alone, and we are grateful for partnerships with local schools, churches, government agencies, and other nonprofits. In Burundi, for example, we have partnerships with World Food Programme and Interchurch Organization for Development Cooperation (ICCO).
 
We are always eager to connect with more organizations in Burundi and the DRC, or in the international development, environment, or philanthropic sectors. For example, Plant With Purpose would love to connect with World Wildlife Fund, as we know they are dedicated to environmental restoration efforts in the DRC and are working in the forest that borders our work. We would also like to connect with Children in Crisis since they implement VSLA groups but in a different region of the DRC. Finally, we would love the opportunity to connect with leading philanthropic organizations such as Margaret A. Cargill Philanthropies and the David and Lucile Packard Foundation.
