A fund like
Blue Mangrove is the result of a mix of experience, knowledge, careful approach and methodological planning. We thrive on our partnership with local experts, populations and Universities.
How you can
make the difference
With this donation, Friendship Bangladesh will dedicate an exclusive piece of land for mangroves plantation, close to the Sundarbans area. On a regular basis, donors will receive reports on the progress of the investment, including financial reports, photos and satellite views. This is one of the commitments we outline in our term sheet.
How does it work?
You donate to Friendship Belgium
As an example, a family of 4 wanting to be carbon neutral for the next 20 years donates 15.000€ and a surface of 1,5 Ha of mangrove is planted for the family.
You contact us and we sign the term sheet outlining our commitments (see in the Family Room). The donation, paid at Fondation Roi Baudouin, will be tax deductible. We will ask you to transfer 60 % now, 40 % in two years.
Funds transferred to Friendship Luxembourg
Friendship Belgium will then transfer the funds to Friendship Luxembourg which will be in charge of safekeeping the funds and taking the administrative steps to release them to Bangladesh as required and justified by the progress of the project. Friendship Luxembourg is already monitoring and coordinating the mangrove reforestation program as supported by various donors and will provide the situation reports.
Friendship Bangladesh is the local actor
Friendship Bangladesh is responsible for the execution of the project in the field. The team manages the needs locally and communicates with Friendship Luxembourg by sending activities reports, expense reports and forecasts. Details of fund expenses and progress will be available for the donors.
