Reed Jules Oppenheimer Foundation

TREES FOR LIFE

Reed has been on the board and actively participated in the objectives of Trees for Life for over 32 years. TFL has empowered poor villagers to plant over 200,000,000 trees in India and Central America. Through a powerful networking program they have popularized the study and planting of the Moringa tree, and the use of cook stoves worldwide. Throughout their history of planting trees and working with the poor they always encountered one common request among the poor no matter how abject the poverty. “We want education for our children”. Now they are launching a global initiative to provide education to the poor by educating the educators through a participatory software program designed internally over the last 20 years.  Click here for more information.
