Planting fruit trees is a rewarding and environmentally beneficial Sadaqah Jariyah that offers a bounty of delicious fruits while contributing to a greener and more sustainable planet. Beyond their nutritional value, fruit trees beautify landscapes, provide habitat for wildlife, and improve air quality.

Our team planted your fruit trees at Paardekop Primary School in Citrusdal, a town of 5,000 people in the Olifants River Valley in the Western Cape.

Paardekop Primary School has classes from grade R up to grade 6.
Peach, plums, pears and apple trees were planted.
Learners at the school were eager to get involved.

“There is none amongst the Muslims who plants a tree or sows seeds, and then a bird, or a person or an animal eats from it, but is regarded as a charitable gift for him.” (Bukhari)
