The Caribbean Philanthropic Alliance is a regional charity, based in Jamaica. They were launched in 2019 with a focus on accelerating achievement of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. To accomplish this they’re seeking to develop partnerships across the Caribbean region. Their major project currently, led by Dr. Rosalea Hamilton, Chair, is to plant a million trees across the Caribbean within the next 15 months. They will directly address Climate Action and Life on Land goals, and ultimately most of the 17 SDGs. (For more about the goals, click here.)
It’s an ambitious project but they are moving right along! Already 12 countries are involved. The volunteers are energized!
CariPhil’s mission is closely aligned with TTFF although they will plant timber and decorative trees as well as fruit trees. Nonetheless we are delighted to collaborate!
Mary McLaughlin, our founder, has been super helpful with the project launch. She’s been involved in building the country network, and serves on the steering committee. Trees That Feed has made an initial pledge of 20,000 fruit trees, to be located in several of the countries.
