The Mentoring Tree

It's Simple. Mentoring Matters.

Give monthly and see how helping someone "re-write their story" blesses yours!

How YOU can make a meaningful generational impact…
while confidently knowing your donation goes to the right place!

Are you looking to:

  • Make a difference or be a blessing
  • Give back to others in need
  • Create a Legacy

If you want to lift others and actually “see” your contribution change lives, our “Mentoring Tree” monthly giving program is a perfect opportunity to strengthen the lives of families across the world.

In most parts of Africa, about half of the population lives on $1.25 per day and lacks the literacy skills to eliminate poverty (Vecchiarelli, 2017). 

Why We Support FMF


Become a "Financial Mentor" Today!

The monthly giving program provides opportunities to enlist “financial mentors” that support programs focused on developing future mentors. Donors receive the title of “Mentor,” which coincides with their particular giving level.  


Cacao Tree Mentor $25

Most of the world’s cacao beans come from Africa, as cacao is a leading export. Cacao trees bear fruit year-round and produce everyone’s favorite treat – CHOCOLATE!

$25 a month allows one child to go to school for a year or plants 25 trees per month for food production, e.g., bananas, plantains, oranges, or cashews.  

Teak Tree Mentor $50

Teak trees are weather resistant and grow fast with a profitable harvest. They are planted when children are born so the tree grows as the child does. Once the child is ready to start school, the wood pays for their education as they mature through their youth. 

$50 pays medical care for two adults or children with disabilities or an academic college scholarship for a literacy center manager.  

Rosewood Tree Mentor $100

Rosewood trees have a lasting sweet smell, and the wood is used for furniture and musical instruments. Like FMF, increasing value and transformation is the design of Rosewood.

$100 buys a sewing machine for vocational training or a set of 40 African storybooks, hires a literacy center manager or buys a goat and 25 chickens. 

Mahogany Tree Mentor $250

Mahogany trees are known for their strength and withstand the test of time. They are insect- and rot-resistant. Mahogany represents the wisdom of the ancients with its reddish-brown color darkening over time.

$250 a month provides housing, instruction, and rehabilitation for one family and completion of the entire FMF program, builds a commercial poultry project, or buys 12 acres of land for farming and agriculture.  

Ebony Tree Mentor $500

The wood produced from Ebony trees is considered exotic, two-toned, and expensive to obtain; therefore, it is associated with the highest giving level. For FMF, ebony represents a partnership of people across cultures, as well as cooperation and collaboration.

$500 per month builds two literacy centers in one year or provides education all year to 30 school-aged children.

Acacia Tree Mentor $1,000 (Personal or Corporate)

The Acacia tree provides a shady reprieve from brutal temperatures and direct sunlight. Its bark is used in dyes, inks, and pharmaceuticals. It stands alone and serves as an important landmark on the savanna, helping people maintain their bearing.

$1000 per month provides a college education for 4 girls rescued from trafficking or contributes to the construction of our new training center. 



We are the Rogers. Five years ago, our family took the giant leap of faith to move to Ghana with only a desire to lift others and share the educational and personal development gifts we have been blessed with. 

There is so much need in the world, but it can be confusing to know where to start or who to trust.  Luckily, FMF is on the ground, helping families overcome poverty, educating children/families, offering vocational training, and providing aftercare for survivors of human trafficking.  

A mind is a terrible thing to waste, and every day that passes is a lost opportunity to create lasting, immeasurable change in terms of generational impact. 


   FMF is actively involved in mentoring the 6 branches of education:

  •    Family Life Skills
  •    Basic Literacy
  •    Academic Aid
  •    Vocational and Entrepreneurship Training
  •    Leadership Education
  •    Agricultural Instruction


LIFEstory Transformation is the keystone of our Leadership Education track. With LIFEstory, our participants learn to "re-write" old stories to create radical change through mental mastery. 

In all the work we do at FMF, the most difficult and also most rewarding is helping people facilitate their own mindset shifts, so they move from "victim" to "victor", teaching them to take back their own power over the results they are creating!

LIFEstory Transformation is what sets FMF apart from ALL other humanitarian organizations.

LIFEstory is the online program we have used to help people create radical transformation, from the daily activities of living to make miracles. 

Listen to Christine, a LIFEstory coach in Nairobi, Kenya, as she talks about the difference LIFEstory has made for her. 


Families Mentoring Families has teamed up with LIFEstory Transformation to bless all our monthly giving mentors with their own LIFEstory Transformation online program membership at every giving level, so you can also benefit yourself and your family, right alongside those you are a blessing. Here is what a few of our FMF donors have to say about how they have used LIFEstory the very same way our African brothers and sisters do:


"I seriously feel like I was just handed the final puzzle piece, except it is more like I just discovered I had it all along!" – H.T., Humanitarian & Business Owner 

"I can take out my paragraph about visiting my parents in Chile! Wahoo! So happy I got to experience that!" – A.H.

"I realize the joy of being awake. I give thanks for knowing this truth. I fully recognize my inner wealth, and my mind is alert to watch my thoughts." – Christine Kamasi, LIFEstory Coach, Nairobi, Kenya


I was just re-vamping my LifeStory and I came across this description of the boot camp I held last month. I wrote a very clear description of a live event I was going to do but didn't even know what it was. I wrote how I wanted it to go and what it would feel like. It was so fun to re-read it and see that it DID totally turn out that way! I had forgotten I'd even written it in there. It was my first live event and I didn't know if I could make it happen, but I put it in my LifeStory and it changed things in my brain. Powerful stuff! – M.C., homeschool mom & business owner

 I also penned that I understood the needs of my children and have promptings on how to reach them in the times they need me most. I have seen that happening over and over in the last couple of months. I have a greater understanding of what they really need in a circumstance and I am able to feel like I am making a difference no one else can. I wrote in my business section that my non-profit had all the funding it needed and that gifted fundraisers would come to me seeking opportunities to help in our efforts to raise enough funds for our cause. Within weeks that started happening, I now have an incredible team focused on doing just that. – A.C., Nonprofit Professional

...LIFEStory makes the impossible possible! A few years ago, I wrote in my LIFEStory “I travel to Africa and help Becky.” It was a deep longing in my heart.  At that time, my situation was such that this dream was absolutely impossible financially and for other reasons. 

Change happened! Lots of change. I ended up in Africa in a way I couldn’t have begun to anticipate, living in Ghana for just over a year. While serving there, I was able to help Becky and FMF multiple times in various capacities. 
LIFEStory is powerful! Write it! Feel it! Believe it! And get out of the way! -- S.D., FMF Committee Chairman

With so much need it is comforting that I can donate to an organization that I trust.  The accomplishments made are a testimonial on their own.  I will always be a contributor to this organization.

LIFEstory Transformation makes FMF Unique!

We think you will see why. Here is what our board members and staff have to say about LIFEstory Transformation:

Since they all use this tool to manifest their own manuscripts!

Jerilyn Brown -- V.P. of Marketing

"Learning LIFEstory has helped me to manifest many more things in my life than I was doing before I started using it: multiple trips to Africa, additional trips with my husband, the flow of money into my life, meeting people that have brought more opportunities to me than I could have ever imagined without this powerful resource."

Cynthia Richards -- Board Member

"LIFEstory has helped me realize that I don't have to fall to circumstances. I can make my own! Powerful!"

LaReita Berky -- V.P. Operations

"Incorporating LIFEstory into my daily thought patterns has allowed gifts of love to flow more freely. The words we speak are powerful, and I have used LIFEstory to improve my relationship with myself and connections with others. As I have many connections in Africa I also have noticed my African brothers and sisters who utilize LIFEstory have altered their life course toward positive change."

Rebecca Williams -- Board Member

"LIFEstory is a powerful tool that I use often. It changes the way I think and the words I speak. We are creative beings, and we are creating all the time, whether we realize it or not. LIFEstory helps me harness that creative power for good, to bring about the results I desire."

Brenda Petru -- Board Member

"LIFEstory transformation has changed my life, saved my marriage, and brought me so much more happiness, contentment, and peace. Who knew so much could change just by changing my story around it?"
