About Floresta Ethiopia Floresta USA (dba Plant With Purpose) has been operating in Ethiopia as a registered International NGO-Floresta Ethiopia. Beginning in 2018, Plant With Purpose has managed a 3-year pilot project in Amhara Region, Andabet Woreda. Following a successful 3-year pilot phase, on July 1, 2021, the Ethiopia Country program began Phase 2 as a fully established Country Program. Compelled by immense need, equipped with a proven Theory of Change, and invited by local communities, Plant With Purpose seeks to scale impact in the Amhara Region of Ethiopia and empower rural farming families to thrive with economic security, environmental restoration, and growth in personal agency and stewardship. Plant With Purpose has established and will continue to strengthen a close collaborative relationship with Ethiopian Orthodox Church to protect existing forest reserves and to also extend more widely the value of nature into environmental stewardship of common land and promote human agency in combatting the effects of climate change. Key interventions in progress include; training farmers in soil conservation and soil fertility, formation of savings led microfinance groups, conservation of existing church forest reserves.
