"If you give a man a handout, you refine his skill for begging. If you give a man a hand-up, you refine his self-worth."


Fruited Plains was established in 2005. We began simply by planting fruit trees, which quickly turned into a sustainable maize project that assisted thousands of families in over-coming starvation. We are now helping the people of Mt. Elgon come out of poverty and establish thriving families and communities.

Making Real Differences in People’s Lives

We are assisting the people of Mt. Elgon utilize their main resource, their farms, in order to rise out of poverty so they can provide for their families and develop their communities. They are doing so with dignity, hard work and self-respect.

Educating Children

Because farmers are now making an income, paying school fees for their children is no longer a struggle.

"If a man and a woman are able to feed their family, they now are able to feel we are accomplishing our mission as parents and it gives them dignity and we are very grateful through the ministry of Fruited Plains."
