Our Core Commitments

Purpose on the Planet was founded with the goal of unlocking the potential of innate human goodness outlined above. To address this meaningful need, we have adopted three fundamental principles. making known the facts in such a way as to touch the imagination of the world.” Eglantyne Jebb, Founder, Save the Children "The world is not ungenerous, but unimaginative, and very busy.... We have to devise means of POWERED BY PURPOSE

As founders we cover 100% of our general operating expenses ourselves—and for a very important reason: This means our donors confidently trust that 100% of every donation they make goes directly toward the environment and the positive humanitarian outcomes that our programs have been created to deliver. A 100% founder-funded model to ensure maximum impact from every single donation. 1

Clearly-defined, consistent, and specific deliverables attributed to every donation.

To better understand the challenges our program

We maintain measurable result requirements that are carefully documented and reconfirmed for every donor dollar received. Likewise, all of our donors are updated on collective, documented progress toward the same stated program goals via our annual report.

ReWrite Our Story

ONE ACT - DUAL IMPACT The ReWrite Our Story program provides sustainable livelihoods for vulnerable communities through the restoration of mangrove forests. This "reciprocal benefit" empowers us all to help mitigate the worst global poverty today while positively addressing climate change for tomorrow.

“ In the 21st century, I think the heroes will be the people who will improve the quality of life, fight poverty and introduce more sustainability.“ Bertrand Piccard, Explorer & Environmentalist

People, Planet, & Prosperity Through a close collaboration with our planting partner, Eden Reforestation Projects , we have been able to develop a holistic program that simultaneously works to support long-term environmental and human well-being.




Employ to Plant projects create livelihoods in under- served communities. Living wages will directly alleviate food insecurity and support human well-being. Mangroves store more carbon per unit area than any other ecosystem on earth. Mangrove reforestation also increases resilience in the face of future climate change. Donors can offset their carbon footprint by boosting mangrove sequestration levels. In addition, they can use content from our Sustainable Solutions series to lower future emissions.

Tackling Climate Justice

Madagascar has the third highest rate of extreme poverty in the world — 75% of people live on less than $1.90 a day . Your donations create sustainable livelihoods but they do a lot more, too.

The latest surveys of our employees report changes in: • Ability to meet food needs • Access to health services, schools, and water sources • Ability to pay off debts and even to start micro-enterprises

The entire continent of Africa has accounted for less than 3% of total global emissions. Creating Climate Resilience

Yet, as the map shows, it is now most likely to endure the worst impacts of climate change. As you can also see, the climate resilience score for the island of Madagascar is among the lowest on the continent.

Our Marovolavo project area is a vital mangrove estuary in need of long-term protection and restoration. It lies at the mouth of the Betsiboka River on the northwest coast of Madagascar. Because mangroves are so efficient in sequestering carbon, they have become a key tool in tackling global climate change . Just as important, restored mangrove forests provide vital habitats for marine life and protect vulnerable coastlines from extreme events, like rising seas and flooding. In fact, the communities we support will be able to withstand the effects of increased global warming with a higher level of climate resilience in the future.

Mangroves & Carbon

Blue Carbon is CO2 that is sequestered and stored in coastal and marine ecosystems. These vital ecosystems, notably mangroves and salt marshes, capture and stockpile large quantities of blue carbon in both the plants and the sediment beneath them. Mangroves store more carbon per unit area than any other ecosystem on Earth . They cover just 0.1% of the planet’s surface but they store up to 10 times more carbon per 100 acres than do terrestrial forests. Also, while the latter store carbon in trunks and branches and will release it when the trees die, mangroves store most of the carbon in their soil and sediment. If left undisturbed, that carbon can stay put for millennia. Sadly, mangroves are declining globally at a rate of 2% per year. As part of the ReWrite Our Story program, you are joining a global movement to reverse this trend.
