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.
WBS takes teams of volunteers to Cambodia, Kenya and Myanmar. There is always time to play with the children in the orphan homes as well as coordinate some hygiene training and educational activities. Often we install water filters, assist with construction projects or medical outreaches. These trips support the efforts of our international partners, and our goal is to come along side them and support them in what they are already doing. WBS aims to build bridges between cultures through relationships and working together. Does this sound like the kind of volunteer “vacation” you would enjoy? Then contact us for dates and more information.
