Working with Organizations to Build Resiliency and Increase Sustainability

The Earth Allies Restoration Network (EARN) was founded in 2020 by long-time partners, The Valley Foundation and Mainsprings in order to enable organizations across the world to become more resilient and sustainable organizations, having greater food security for their communities, while also helping to restore the natural ecosystem in their area. EARN started its journey in East Africa and continues to grow deep roots in the region. Due to the support and interest we’ve received, as well as the success we’ve experienced over the first few years, EARN is expanding globally!

The EARN movement is successful because of its many dedicated and inspiring partners. Community organizations and funders are coming together to transform food production and improve the environment across the planet. We believe in starting small and working together to grow strong roots that will support generations to come. Whether you are a supporter or an implementer, we hope you will join us in this movement!
