WHY

Investing in Long-Term Impact

At Relief Foundation International, we believe in working towards sustainable futures. The Roots of Empowerment Project reflects our commitment to long-term solutions. Short-term aid may alleviate immediate needs, but true empowerment lies in providing communities with the tools to support themselves. By investing in projects like the Roots of Empowerment, we are laying the groundwork for lasting change, fostering independence, and creating resilient communities.

HOW

Our Execution Plan

The success of the Roots of Empowerment Project lies in its strategic approach. We envision a self-sustaining ecosystem. Here’s the plan:

  • Goal: 12000 Trees Until 2026 [ 3000 in 2024 | 4000 in 2025 | 5000 in 2026 ] 

  • Annual Yield per Tree: Each Date tree is expected to yield approximately 40 kg of dates annually.

  • Economic Impact: With an average price of 100 rupees per kg, one tree can generate 4000 rupees per year.

  • Sustainable Support: Considering the monthly expenses of a family (Rs. 50,000), it will require 240 trees to support a family’s needs.

  • Permanent Impact: Through the cultivation of 12000 trees, we aim to empower 50 families permanently, providing them with a consistent source of income to cover their expenses and build a better future.
