The Giving Tree project will give mango trees to children from birth to 5 years old. The trees take approximately 5 - 7 years to produce fruit. By the time the tree produces fruit the child will be old enough to attend school. In order to attend school in one of the nine villages Haiti Plunge Inc. serves a tuition is charged. Unless a child has a sponsor or a way to pay the cost of tuition they cannot attend school. The sale of the mangos will give the child sufficient funds to pay their tuition. The mango trees produce fruit annually. The mango tree also grows deep roots which helps to control the erosion that is widespread throughout the mountains in Haiti.
