Your donation enables Blessings of The Forest to finance several things:
The running costs of BOTF (local administrative costs, website hosting and development, accountancy fees, legal costs, business cards, logistics, key appointments, occasional support of local correspondants and mediators, communications and raising awareness)
Agriculatural equipment for tree nurseries and the maintenance and protection of plantations
Occasional incentives for farmers in order to help support them with their basic needs until the plantations reach maturation and provide a return on investment (5 years).
What does sponsorship entail ?
By sponsoring an Iboga tree with "Blessings Of The Forest", you will be suporting a model that protects the Iboga tree as well as the ancestral traditions associated with it. Another important aspect to the funding of Iboga plantations is that it creates an alternative to deforestation and poaching for the people who can earn a living through the project. The Iboga saplings are mainly planted within the Gabonese community forests but also within the public domain in order to help those animals that naturally eat Iboga (mainly elephants and monkeys) to have enough of this precious resource to ensure their proper development. Your contribution helps to plant a tree but it is not only about planting trees. The various branches of our projects are indispensable to the preservation of the tree that you are sponsoring.
