About

The Acacia is a desert tree with an impressive umbrella-shaped canopy. It is one of the ancient trees mentioned in the Old Testament, and to this day provides sustenance and shelter in the harsh and often unforgiving environment where it grows. The bark and sap of the tree are used for medicinal purposes in many parts of the world. Its roots seek out water and minerals that are well below the surface. Like the Acacia tree – Acacia Network stands in places of need, has well developed roots, and nurtures the community to reach its potential.
