|The Million Tree Project: One Tree at a Time |
In Brazil, the Sisters live surrounded by the rain forest.They are vigilant about replenishing the forest with seedlings as more and more trees are felled and hauled away illegally. The Million Tree Project was established in memory of Sister Dorothy in 2009.Its goal is to plant one million seedlings in the Amazon rain forest. Because the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur is an international congregation, The Million Tree Project is supported by teachers, students, families and business partners in countries across the globe.
