Where your sponsorship money goes

Meet Pak, a Women's Champion, and a village chief in Cambodia. She earns a living as a farmer and works in the salt fields, but recent erratic and heavy rains have made salt production difficult.  

As a Women’s Champion, Pak has been trained on climate change resilience and now trains other families in the area on how they can be more prepared for extreme weather in advance. For example, Pak is now able to tell households how to prepare for periods of droughts by using water tanks to save water.  

Here are some of the ways your fundraising could make a difference to women and girls like Pak:  

£98 can buy a solar-powered pumping machine for a household, providing them with a dependable water source for farming. 

£150 could pay for seeds, tools, and 'green skills' training, enabling farmers to grow sustainable, drought-resistant crops.

£230 could plant 1000 mangrove trees in a coastal area, protecting communities from future flash floods and soil erosion as well as supporting fishing livelihoods.
