SPONSOR A TREE – Plant a Tree Today!

sponsor a tree

The Bhutan Youth Development with the help of individuals, staff and the Young volunteers in Action (Y-VIAs) had a successful plantation drive. Through this program, we were able to raise awareness among people about the benefits of planting a tree and at the same time offer students and individuals an opportunity to support Bhutan’s unique environmental conservation effort.

Sponsor a Tree Project was initiated in the year 2016 to make young Bhutanese realize that the importance of our environment in which we live in which provides natural services for humans and all other species that are essential to our health, quality of life and survival. The plantation is done every year during the Golden Youth Award Camp even before the project was started.

A single tree can absorb CO2 at a rate of 48 lb. per year and with a small contribution of 200 Nu. ($3 USD), the YDF’s volunteers will plant a tree sapling on your behalf and take care of it to ensure that the sapling grows into a full-fledged tree one day. We will follow up on your generous donation and send you a photo of where the sapling you sponsored is planted in Bhutan.

This year we are observing Her Majesty the Queen Mother Ashi Tseyring Pem Wangchuck’s 60th Birthday Anniversary and carrying out tremendous plantation drive. YDF with the help of individuals, Volunteers (Y-VIAs) and staff, we have planted 2960 trees till now across the country.

To sponsor a tree, please write to us at info@bhutanyouth.org or call us at + 975 17564749.
