Our first 15,000 drought defence trees were funded and planted in Tamil Nadu through Project GreenHands.
We saw a deepening into nature-based organisational practice, the coining of our phrase 'nature-based feminine leadership' and the integration of the feminine mystery teachings around menstruality into our organisational culture.
We partnered with our second reforestation beneficiary Eden Projects, funding the planting of mangroves in Madagascar, and we drilled down more deeply into our own reforestation strategy, outlining our geographic focus and selection criteria and streamlining our due diligence process.
We also saw the co-creation (between Board and team) of our plan to earn towards financial self-sustainability through the offering of courses that delivered on our mission of feminine empowerment through nature connectedness. 575 women from 15 countries registered for our first free introductory call for Earthing the Moon (our first course run by Jewels Wingfield). Over 3000 women have now heard it. Courses have run every season since, raising funds for the org and planting trees.
We ran our IndieGoGo campaign to raise funds for the creation and launch of our new online platform and website. We surpassed our fundraising goal, raising $96K and then securing top designers to rebrand and rebirth the online expression of TreeSisters.
We have funded over 140,000 trees between India and Madagascar.
We have stepped into partnership with two more beneficiary projects WeForest (working in Brazil) and International Tree Foundation (working in Kenya).
We reached over 500,000 trees planted per year.
Since our Million Trees campaign in the Autumn of 2016, we funded the planting of 740,485 trees, and as of this month (August 2017) have funded a further 291,905 for the Summer Quarter, bringing our all-time funding total to 1,032,390 trees.
