The Lulu Tree prevents tomorrow’s orphans by equipping today’s families through the local church — providing microloans for building up local businesses.

Many parents in Africa struggle to make ends meet, not because they don’t work hard enough — they work sunup to sundown, trying to sell fuel or purchasing a few items from the market to sell in their village, or doing neighbors’ washing, or selling whatever food they grow in their garden — but because they don’t receive fair wages or fair opportunities. This unfairness makes it difficult to help provide for their children, and may mean they have to give their children away.

It is our privilege to partner with pastors across Africa who are assisting their communities by giving them a hand-up through microloan programs.
