The Butterfly Tree’s aim is to support orphans and vulnerable people living in some of the poorest areas of the world. We are all volunteers dedicated to improving the lives of those less fortunate than we are.

Our reward is to see children having access to safe clean water, feeding programmes, better education and adequate healthcare.

Nothing we do is for our benefit, though being nominated, shortlisted or actually receiving an reward gives a huge boost to the charity. It can also strengthen a grant application or attract the attention of potential donors when our cause and work has been recognised.
