Rice Farm Matching funds:
Our partners in Cambodia are planning to expand their current rice farm, to increase their production levels to the point where they can independently support the 2,000 orphan and widows in their care. To do this, they must build a dike system around their fields so that they can control the water levels in the rice paddies. This will enable them to grow three crops per year. They are currently seeking 500,000 US$ as matching funds to a grant which would enable them to build the dike system. Please contact WBS if you would like more information about this project.
Update: we are excited to report that our partners in Cambodia met their goal and were awarded the $750,000 dollars in matching funds to develop a sustainable rice farm. They will begin construction on the dike system and fields when the rainy season is finished in 2018. Thank you to everyone that partnered with us in helping Cambodia care for the orphans and needy children.
