#PlantTheirFuture: Buy Plants and Save a Child’s Future



Wazzup Pilipinas!

A clean and green environment is crucial to the health and development of children. In line with this sustainable development goal, Save the Children Philippines is launching #PlantTheirFuture, a fundraising campaign that cultivates care for plants, and supports the learning needs of children in poor households amid the pandemic.

Ornamental agriculture has gained a trending popularity as many people staying home during the quarantine period found planting as a means to destress while some saw it as an opportunity to support a living.

The campaign invites everyone, most especially the ‘plantitas’ and ‘plantitos,’ to help deprived and marginalized children to get access to education while doing their hobbies and caring for the environment.

Through a partnership with Long Live Plants, supporters can purchase a 6 x 6-inch Dragon Tail plant in a woven basket for only Php 995.

Each plant purchased will provide a basic learning kit to a child under Save the Children’s Project ARAL (Access to Resources for Alternative Learning) that will support the learning from home of underprivileged children in Caloocan, Navotas, and Malabon, as well as in Southern Mindanao.

Naida Pasion, Chief Business Development Officer of Save the Children Philippines, said while classes reopened last week, millions of children are still at risk of being left behind due to lack of access to learning materials, including devices and internet connection.

“Christmas is about giving, and as we nurture plants at home, so too can we support children’s continuing learning at home and help ensure a better future for them. This season, let’s express our gratitude for the life that we have, by giving back to our children, to our environment through the #PlantTheirFuture project,” said Pasion.

Plantitos and plantitas may order the Dragon Tail plant by sending a message to Long Live Plants on their Instagram @longliveplants.ph and/ or to Save the Children Philippines via e-mail at judy.malabanan@savethechildren.org. Shipping fee will be shouldered by the donor/ buyer.



Save the Children believes every child deserves a future. In the Philippines and around the world, we give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. We do whatever it takes for children – every day and in times of crisis – transforming their lives and the future we share.
