Story

Welcome to Georgia’s Children of the World’s fundraising page set up to support the on-going projects of Build Your Future Today Center NGO in Siem Reap, Cambodia.

Sponsoring a Sapling

Sponsoring a tree is very simple. Your personalised gift of a sapling such as mango or jackfruit costs £10 pounds. You let us know what message you’d like on the tag (a name or a dedication) and this will be hand-written onto the label and attached to the tree.

The Benefits of Growing Fruit Trees

The saplings are planted in villages in the poorest parts of Cambodia. As they grow it will enable these villagers to be more self-sufficient. It will give those precious fruit to eat and surplus to sell – as well as providing precious wood to build shelters and furniture. The branches of these trees will provide shade, and the leaves will eventually drop and put nutrients back into the soil.

As we are planting saplings we must be guided by nature, and the BFT team lets us know when the plantings take place (it may be based around the rainy season) but we’ll let you know on the group page when your tree is planted.

We also create a photo album on the group page for each tree planting which identifies the personalised tags and the precise location of the tree so you can see exactly where ‘your’ tree is using a program such as Google Earth.

All of the monies raised are sent to BFT, we are grateful for your support, funding and volunteers.
