The Mission of TIST:
TIST subsistence farmers combat deforestation and
poverty by planting trees for the global carbon market. They change
their communities and the world through education and taking action
to improve their environment, agriculture and health.
Since 1999, US-based TIST has been empowering a rapidly
expanding group of subsistence farmers to counteract the devastating
effects on their environment by an innovative yet simple solution -
planting millions of trees.
TIST provides women and men access to a sustainable future and
long-term income through the global market for greenhouse
gas credits (GhG).
