5000 TREES FOR CHANGE
Help us effect change in our communities by honouring the legacy of a loved one in our Grove with an olive tree and special dedication plaque.
There are those moments in life when we look for something out of the ordinary, a gift that says we really care, or we will never forget you, a legacy that will live on for generations to come. Imagine if that gift could also help to change an impoverished child’s life, to help them break free from the damaging cycle of poverty. By sponsoring an olive tree in Goedgedacht’s Olive Peace Grove you can do just that.
Is there a loved one whose legacy you would like to honour or a person, organisation or group who you would like to commemorate for their contribution during difficult times? You can do so by dedicating an olive tree in our Olive Peace, that will grow as a living memory to them, and its fruits will continue to be a source of life for others.
As part of The Goedgedacht Trust’s long term sustainability plan, the organisation began planting olive trees in 1993 and to date has approximately 13 843 trees in its Olive Peace Grove. The olives are processed on the farm into Extra Virgin Olive Oil and table olives, the profits from the sale of our products are used to support Goedgedacht’s Path Onto Prosperity Programme.
The BTS Army South Africa is supporting the Goedgedacht Trust, home to the Kim Seokjin Baby Unit named after BTS’ Jin and opened due to generous donations from the ARMY across the world in March 2021. Donate and Dedicate an olive tree(s) to help effect change in our communities for only R700 to help Goedgedacht sustain the Kim Seokjin Baby Unit through their Path Onto Prosperity programme.
YOUR DONATION OF R700 WILL:
Cover the price of the tree and its nurturing for five years, until it becomes fruit bearing. It also includes the charge for scripting a special dedication onto a metal plaque and placing it on our Dedication Wall in the Olive Peace Grove. Many donors have found their dedication as meaningful way of honouring someone on a special occasion such as a birthday, a wedding anniversary or an outstanding achievement.
Please advise the details of your 16 word dedication in the block provided, when completing your donation, alternatively we will contact you once payment has been received to confirm the wording of your dedication plaque.
OUR DEDICATION SERVICES:
A few times a year we host a Dedication Service where you will be invited to a lovely service in our Chapel followed by the unveiling of the newest plaques and a lovely lunch. The perfect opportunity to visit us with your friends and family to view your special dedication plaque.
