A Tree for every child

Goal: A tree for every child.

What if every child had the opportunity to plant a tree?

Let’s teach kids how to plant a tree. The ChariTree Foundation is Canada’s environmental education charity for children. These days many children have less time and fewer opportunities to connect with nature. This is a real loss because research shows that contact with nature makes kids feel better about themselves.

ChariTree strives to give as many children as we can a tree of their own. It’s about supporting environmental education programs for children by giving kids a tree to plant at their home, camp or school that is native to their region ~ and an opportunity to connect with nature and contribute positively to their world.

When children plant trees they can learn:

  • hands-on experience changing the world by learning how to plant and care for a tree
  • tree science and ecology
  • forest connectivity and cooperation
  • compassion for trees
  • tree conservation
