By 2018 7,000 trees were distributed by YOLOU to farmers, schools and families throughout the region.
In response to wedding gift funds given to a Canadian couple who were getting married in 2019, more than 12,000 fruit trees were planted.
These trees help to hold the soil (reduces erosion), retain moisture, provide needed shade from the hot sun, and can provide food. In addition, trees planted by this organisation ideally provide
needed local income from the fruit.
