Make your Christmas count this year

This Christmas is your opportunity to make a difference in the lives of communities in Cambodia who are less fortunate than us.  Our Christmas campaign will focus on establishing nutritional vegetable gardens at schools and communities while also teaching them valuable skills and knowledge in vegetable gardening and food nutrition.

A bit of context

The COVID-19 virus is having a huge impact across the planet, particularly in our most impoverished communities, who live from day-to-day. Many of the urban poor are migrants or refugees who rely on day-labouring to support their basic needs. Already we are seeing these people fleeing cities to escape disease and to look for food in surrounding rural areas.

Our Approach

We are seeking to empower people to grow their own food simply and sustainably during this critical time. Our programs increase access to a constant supply of nutritious food. We have trusted partners in many countries who need support to quickly establish food gardens to meet the needs of those who have lost their livelihoods.

In Urban Areas

In urban areas, although land for food production is very scarce, even in slums, there are vacant blocks and small areas that can be used for vegetable cultivation. We tailor solutions for individual communities, to ensure they are easy to adopt right away and able to be maintained into the future.

We rent available land and set up facilities required to grow food. We provide tanks & drums for water storage and access to seeds, teaching people how to save seeds from their harvest for distribution to others.

In Rural Areas

Rural areas are being impacted by an influx of people looking for food. We help these communities scale up their food production and identify plots for migrants / refugees to plant their own gardens. Communities need financial support for key infrastructure such as fencing and increased water supply, as well as the purchase of seeds and tools.

Your donation will help us:

  • Provide garden tools, seeds & equipment needed to start a vegetable garden
  • Provide fencing
  • Provide water tanks, irrigation equipment & water
  • Help pay for land rent
  • Give financial support until the gardens start producing
  • Provide training & agricultural advice
